Cuba will officially recognise private property for the first time under a new constitution that features a number of far-reaching changes, state media say.
Property sales were banned after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, but permitted after a law change in 2011.
The communist-run state’s new constitution will reaffirm that central planning and state enterprise are key to the economy.
It is expected to be approved by a vote at the national assembly next week.
The draft constitution would then be put to a popular referendum for final approval later this year.
If it is passed it will replace the existing constitution which was approved by the Communist Party in 1976.
