Havana, May 22 – The National Information Agency (AIN) celebrated its 40th anniversary with the commitment to keep reporting objectively, systematically and transparently the Cuban reality in all its diversity.
After paying tibute to the Cuban National Hero, Jose Marti, the director of the AIN, Edda Diz, said that since its founding on May 21, 1974 the Agency has covered both major events and everyday deeds, as well as stories weaving anonymous heroes of the nation.
In this regard, Diz highlighted the relevant work of the agency in the everyday journalistic construction that for four decades has kept a continous flow of information about the events of the country, in a context marked by media campaigns against the island.
As part of the Cuban press system, it is our duty reporting the informative chronicle of the real Cuba, of the nation we are building with a renewed perspective on the process of updating the economic model and the transformations taking place in our society, she said.
Likewise -she said- we cannot leave room for slander, distortion and malicious omission that are part of the strategy of ideological-political subversion against Cuba.
During the political-cultural act, the Union of Journalists of Cuba (UPEC) and the Ideological Department of the Central Committee of the Communist Party recognized the informative work of the AIN and the leading workers of this mass media were distinguished.
With 15 correspondent offices throughtout the country and a Central News Desk in Havana, a radio station and a television teletext channel, the AIN is one of the media with more representation on the island, that offers its services to more than 100 press media, organizations and entities, at a local, national and international level.
