This study attempts to analyse the growth of Cuba's production sector and to
identify the main determinants and constraints that existed during a period when
tighter restrictions on trade and financial activity forced the country to reorient its
economic model and its position in the world economy. This analysis includes an
exploration of the institutional dimension of the gross domestic product (GDP). The
model, variables and methodology used for this purpose have all been adapted to
the particular features and specificities of the Cuban economy.
