The Venezuelan government is to acquire up to 60,000 hectares of land in order to accomplish the goals set by the "Great Mission Housing Venezuela," informed the Minister of Housing and Habitat, Ricardo Molina.
The government official explained that, so far, the government has 13,000 hectares of land, where 260,000 dwellings have been built since mid-April 2012 until present.
Likewise, the government expects to build additional 400,000 dwellings, out of which, 87,000 will be delivered by the end of the year.
Moreover, the minister denied that construction of dwellings had slowed down after the October 7 presidential election.
José Vicente Rangel clearly said: "We are not conducting negotiations threatened with a gun in the head." He warned behind closed doors in the midst of the social upheaval occurred during the oil strike in 2002 and 2003. Dissenting Timoteo Zambrano answered back that no other option was available: "The thing is that otherwise, you do not negotiate."
