Cuban Cabinet Change Aims to Boost Flagging Economy

With Cuba's economy flagging, President Raul Castro has turned to his most trusted economic adviser, Marino Murillo, granting him more authority to carry out ambitious reforms to the socialist economy. Castro on Thursday added the title of economy minister to Murillo's brief. Murillo, 53, was already one of Cuba's vice presidents, part of the powerful 14-member Political Bureau of the ruling Communist Party, and chief of the commission charged with carrying out Cuba's market-style economic reforms.
