Cuba Cuts Children’s Clothing Prices 6% at State Stores

HAVANA – The Finance and Prices Ministry said on Tuesday that children’s clothing prices were being cut “around 6 percent” in convertible Cuban peso (CUC) terms, equivalent to the U.S. dollar, at state-run stores as part of an effort to increase the peso’s purchasing power.

An official notice published by state media said the price cut was to take effect with the announcement and there would be no detailed price lists, “taking into account the wide variety of goods.”

On May 17, the government implemented cuts ranging from 9 percent to 30 percent in the prices of basic foods, and 6 percent for children’s footwear bought with CUCs.

On April 22, another regulation reduced the prices of other goods, such as chicken, sold in CUCs, as well as rice and peas, which are bought with regular Cuban pesos, or CUPs.
