Abstract [en]

The sugar is no longer a determining factor in the Cuban economy, but yet stills an important factor. In August 2002 there was an official announcement that a reformation was going to take place and change the nation’s sugar industry to a more profitable industry. The purpose of this thesis was to examine if the Cuban sugar industry has become more efficient in producing sugar, according to different measures of efficiency through a qualitative approach. Cuban statistics has been studied and compared between the years before and after the restructure, this with respect to the measures of productive efficiency and efficiency measurements proposed by Farrell. The overall result showed that the restructuring has lead to a less efficient production in the Cuban sugar industry.
