HAVANA (AP) -- Cuban parliamentarians are meeting in one of their twice-annual sessions and the state of the economy is foremost on the agenda.

The comptroller's office is also expected to deliver a report on its attempts to root out corruption.

Members of parliament met earlier this week in committee to discuss matters including the development of biotechnology and agricultural production.

Official media reported that Agriculture Minister Gustavo Rodriguez said Cuba's food imports have reached $2 billion a year, but the country believes it could produce 60 percent of that domestically.

Foreign journalists were not allowed access to Saturday's session.
