This article examines how PNDES 2030, based on the Cuban socialist development model, corresponds to the SDGs, and through this, assesses whether Cuba's socialist development model can realize sustainable development. Furthermore, we reviewed the limitations of Cuban-style sustainable development and examined the conditions for the Cuban-style sustainable economic development model to be compatible with the SDGs, the dominant development paradigm in the international community. Since 1990, Cuba has made efforts to transform its development model and establish a sustainable development model in order to break away from external dependence in its economic structure and at the same time actively respond to changes in the global economy. The Cuban government established the 'Cuban National Strategic Plan 2030 (PNDES 2030)' for sustainable development goals centered on six strategic axes, with 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the mainstream paradigm, in each strategic axis. Detailed items were placed. These strategic axes were planned to coexist with the 17 sub-goals of the SDGs without significantly departing from the post-revolutionary socialist development perspective. However, in reality, the U.S. economic sanctions that have continued since the revolution are acting as an obstacle to PNDES 2030, which can be considered a Cuban-style sustainable development model, achieving certain economic results. Additionally, overcoming the inefficiencies and low productivity that occur within the framework of a planned economy can also be said to be an important condition for realizing sustainable development in Cuba.
