“It is hardly fair to recognize the work of local authorities, mayors and governors, in promoting housing as a dynamic axis of the economy, especially in the face of the reactivation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This sector employs more of a million people and moves 34 subsectors of the economy”, pointed out the Minister of Housing.
