HOW CHINA's VICE PRESIDENT LEARNT FROM CASTRO's GARDEN

"When Xi arrived, he found that Raul's residence was small and the dining room could accommodate only a small number of people. He recalled that Raul showed him several small plots of land in his backyard where the Cuban president grew food for his family and gave what was left over to the ordinary people. That encounter appears to have left a deep impression on him. It was little wonder, Xi reportedly said, that Cuba - as a socialist country - could survive so long under decades of harsh sanctions imposed by the United States, because the Cuban leaders still enjoyed strong support from the people."
