Caracas– The Venezuelan Government has built 1,360,621 decent homes since the creation of the Great Housing Mission Venezuela (GMVV, Spanish acronym), five years ago, Minister for Habitat and Housing Manuel Quevedo said Tuesday.
At the end of the first meeting of the Superior Body on Housing and Habitat for this year, Quevedo said in statements to state media that the GMVV has also delivered 761,469 home deed titles.
During 2016, thanks to the policies put in place by President Nicolas Maduro, 359,874 new homes were delivered to low income families, “a historical record, marking the highest delivery of the history of the Great Housing Mission Venezuela,” he said.
On the other hand, the New Tricolour Neighbourhood Mission (Gran Mision Barrio Nuevo, Barrio Tricolour in Spanish), has repaired a total of 351,237 homes in five years.
The Minister also indicated that by Thursday, 731 worthy homes would have been delivered to an equal number of families in the central and eastern states of Anzoategui, Miranda, Lara and Aragua, as well as 604 titles deeds.
He said that in the next few days President Maduro will approve this year’s government’s goals in the housing sector, “which will engage us all to continue advancing and building socialist Venezuela.”
