Personalities from organizations of the Cuban civil society and managers from the State entities are attending today an online forum-debate on the impact of the economic, commercial and financial blockade imposed by the United States to this country.
Panelists will answer the concerns Internet users from many countries have posted in the forum, created since November 5, while the appearance of the panel can be seen live online.
Convened by the United Nations' Cuban Association, the exchange will focus on the damages caused to the Caribbean island by the U.S. policy of blockade maintained for over 50 years.
Lawyers, scientists, historians, academics, intellectuals and economists will answers and exchange ideas with the participants in the forum.
According to the organizers, through this event, the Cuban civil society pretends to draw attention of the world on a policy that has caused losses to Cuba estimated at $1.066 trillion dollars, considering the depreciation of that currency.
The U.S. General Assembly will vote on Tuesday, November 13, a resolution on the necessity of ending the blockade, which has been supported by the international community since it was first presented in 1992.
