The Cuba Ministry of Higher Education will now allow passengers flying to the island to bring unlimited food, hygiene and medicine products with no import fees.

Cubans are demanding a change from Cuba’s Communist government, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel, offered some self-criticism while saying that government shortcomings in handling shortages and other problems played a role in protests.

Prime Minister Manuel Marrero announced customs flexibility for Cuban citizens who go on foreign trips to bring home toiletries, food and medicines, which are the most hard to find items in Cuba.

Marrero also said work is being done to improve the stability of the national electricity system and officials will seek to improve the supply of medicines, many of which are produced on the island.
