Construction in Cuba Plummets
February 24, 2011

HAVANA TIMES, Feb. 24 – Housing construction has nosedived in Cuba since
2006, when 111,373 new homes were built, according to a report by the
National Office of Statistics (ONE). In 2010 barely 34,014 homes were
built, reported IPS.

Cuba was hit by three major hurricanes in 2008 and the subsequent
priority shifted to repairing and rebuilding destroyed housing and
infrastructure, debilitating the new housing program. A shortage of
building materials is another factor.

The housing shortage is one of the biggest problems facing the Cuban
population, especially felt by the youth who find it nearly impossible
to live independently.
