Very little information is available about Miguel Diaz-Canel’s finances, and he is known to be a very private figure. If he is anything like his successors, Raul had around $100 net worth during his reign and Fidel’s net worth was once estimated to be around $900 million. One can assume his number could be somewhere close to this, but there’s a difference between a man who ruled Cuba for decades, his brother, and his former vice president. Let’s take a look at his life over the years to get a better picture of the man.

The Early Years

Díaz-Canel was born in the city of Placetas in Villa Clara, the son of a mechanical plant worker. He went on to graduate from Central University of Las Villas as an electronics engineer. Upon graduation, he joined the Cuban Revolutionary Armed Forces.


In the spring of 1985, Díaz-Canel taught at his former university. Within two years, he branched off into politics, completing an international mission in Nicaragua as First Secretary of the Young Communist League of Villa Clara. In 1993, he started working with the Communist Party of Cuba and was elected to the position of First Secretary of the Provincial Party Committee of Villa Clara Province within a year.


By 2003, he was appointed first secretary of the PCC in Holguin and elected member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of Cuba. By 2009, he was appointed by the president as Minister of Higher Education.


In 2013, Díaz-Canel became First Vice President of Cuba, which essentially placed him as deputy to the president, Raúl Castro. In 2018, Casto stepped down; by April, Díaz-Canel was selected to succed Castro as president, as confirmed by a vote of the National Assembly. Diaz-Canel is notably the first civilian president of the country since the revolution.


President Miguel Díaz-Canel visited Trinidad in January and received a warm welcome by the people of Trinidad.
