Cuba's Communist Party seeks out the youth

Involving younger generation is priority as Communist Party holds first National Conference.

    Cuba's Communist Party is meeting in Havana for its first National Conference, and getting young people involved in the affairs of the nation will be high on the agenda. 

    Many say they would like to see new faces in government, stressing the need for generational change in a country where the top leadership is about 80 years old.
