The goal is to provide services and products related to information technology, communications and electronics to promote computer culture in the People’s Council.
The inauguration was attended by Osvaldo Martínez García, general director of the Computer and Electronics Youth Club, as well as its board of directors, and the community and representatives of cooperating agencies of the project.
The JCCE emerged on September 8, 1987 at the initiative of Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz as a network of technology centers, with the aim of contributing to the socialization and computerization of Cuban society.
Today there are more than 600 such facilities in Cuba that also allow users to deploy personal projects, exercise knowledge with some computer tool and develop skills. (Radio 26)
