The Minister added that almost three million homes were built since the housing program was launched in 2011. Villarroel pointed out that 37.4 percent of the houses were made with the help of the population who was provided by materials and technical advice.
He said Venezuela would continue constructing despite the destabilization the country is facing.

A total of 94,122 homes were built with the assistance of companies from Brazil, Turkey, Iran, China, Belarus and Portugal.
The president of Venezuela Nicolas Maduro said the Plan is aimed to reach the construction of five million houses by 2025.
The "Great Housing Project" was implemented to help families affected by heavy rains in Venezuela at the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011 and was later extended to the rest of the population due to economic reasons.
