Minister of Housing and Habitat Ricardo Molina: "Today (Wednesday), we will sign an agreement to build 10,008 dwellings"
Venezuela's Minister of Housing and Habitat Ricardo Molina reported on Wednesday that his government executed an agreement with Iran for the building of houses in three Venezuelan states. This is the second bilateral agreement in the field of housing.
Today (Wednesday), we will sign an agreement to build 10,008 dwellings," Molina told state-run TV channel VTV, state-owned news agency AVN quoted.
The dwellings will be located in the states of Lara, Yaracuy and Carabobo.
The minister explained that supplementary facilities, as required, will be also built, including schools and health care sites.
He reported that the government expects to complete the three housing plans in an 18-month term and highlighted that the program will benefit more than 45,000 residents of the three states.
"They will be four-floor buildings with apartments of two or three bedrooms," Molina specified and added that they will also have "all the necessary equipment and green areas."
President Nicolás Maduro is not only the heir to the throne, but also to an economic crisis which demanded urgent measures to rectify the course. The crisis showed up in two aspects: a 50% inflation estimate, and shortage of staples ranging between 70% and 98%. These issues might hit the President's poor popularity; considering his feeble electoral victory of 1% over his challenger.
