Cuba will launch its Eighth Internal Control National Audit on Oct. 21
as part of the government’s fight against corruption, a senior official
of the Comptroller General Office announced Thursday.
The one-month audit campaign will look into programs including building
materials sales in the provinces of Santiago de Cuba and Guantanamo,
which were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy last October.
Other programs to be audited involve export subsidies, the granting of
land use permits, direct trade between farmers and tourism entities, the
implementation of the 17 recently-adopted measures on agricultural
cooperatives and state payments to private entities.
The Comptroller General Office was created by the the government of
Cuban leader Raul Castro in 2009 to fight corruption and strengthen law
enforcement in the country.
The last general audit was held six months ago, when 34 percent of the
surveyed state-run entities showed deficiencies.
