There is also an interesting article from Cuba regarding the new International System of Units (SI). The SI, which is crucial to our technical regulation and measurement work, will be switched from the current method of variable fundamental constants, to the new method in which the value of certain fundamental constants will be fixed. The current system has involved a great deal of effort in terms of training, technical infrastructure and realisation of the units of measurement, which may be difficult and costly with the new SI proposed changes.
