Cuban socialism’s efforts to resolve the “agrarian issue” determined the strategies currently in force and their immediate goals. As part of this process, we examine six aspects that characterize the Island’s sociopolitical development: the structure of land ownership, land usage, the agrarian organization, the technological model, the agrarian economy, and the development of rural society. Many challenges remain to shaping comprehensive and coherent economic strategies that encourage sustainable economic growth, facilitate Cuba’s international economic integration, and contribute to the efficiency and competitiveness of Cuba’s economy while simultaneously safeguarding the revolution’s gains in social inclusion and equity. The research is supported by knowledge and results from scientific and professional literature, that is, the findings and scientific results of numerous professional authors who have studied the issues of this work in their books and articles.
