Cubans read the draft proposal of changes to the constitution during the beginning of a public political discussion to revamp a Cold War-era constitution in Havana, Cuba August 13, 2018. The new version keeps the Communist Party as the only legal party and its role as the guide of the nation, stating this is irrevocable. Yet, it eliminates a reference in the current constitution to reaching a utopian communism and another banning the use of private property to exploit the labor of others. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo

Cuban General Samuel Rodiles Planas speaks during a public political discussion to revamp a Cold War-era constitution in Havana, Cuba August 13, 2018. The new version doubles down on the state's dominance over the means of production and land and the role of centralized planning. This too is deemed irrevocable. Still, for the first time there it recognizes the market as a fact of economic life, though it can be countermanded at will by the government. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo

Private businesses and non-farm cooperatives are included for the first time in the new version as legitimate economic activity, and the role of joint ventures and other forms of foreign investment are upgraded from secondary to "important" or "fundamental." At the same time the "accumulation" of private property by citizens is banned. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo

A Cuban looks on as she waits for the beginning of a public political discussion to revamp a Cold War-era constitution at the Nguyen Van Troi Polyclinic in Havana, Cuba August 13, 2018. Government opponents have blasted the top down process as a "fraud" and say the proposals will be pushed through with few substantive changes. They question whether citizens will be free to speak their minds on issues such as one-party rule and capitalism versus socialism in a land where public debate on these subjects is taboo.

The proposals do not by themselves reduce risk or change the rules of doing business in Cuba, but they do further foreign investment and are another step toward a mixed economy and modern society, foreign businessmen and diplomats said. Cuban officials say changes in government structure aim to improve accountability and administration of the state-run economy. REUTERS/Tomas Bravo
