President Lenin Moreno said that this year they began to build 20,000 homes of the projected 60,000. In the 4 years it is planned to execute 325,000 housing solutions.
The call is open for the construction sector. Yesterday, President Lenin Moreno called for the real estate sector to participate in an alliance for the Casa para Todos plan. The announcement was made in Guayaquil, with the presence of Vice President María Alejandra Vicuña; the head of the Interinstitutional Casa para Todos plan Committee, Rocío González de Moreno; ministers and delegates from the construction sector. According to the plan, 325,000 housing solutions will be made during the four years of government, of which 191,000 will have no cost because they will go to families in extreme poverty.
One of the objectives is to reduce the quantitative deficit of households, which until November 2016 was at 12.3%. By 2021 it is intended to decrease to 9.9% in the country. Now 20,000 homes are executed, of which 60% are on the coast, according to Mario Burbano, councilor of the Casa Para Todos plan. He explained that the program has two types of call, the first for the real estate and construction sector, for projects on public property; and the second for the formation of strategic alliances for real estate projects on Soil Bank land.
Vice President María Alejandra Vicuña indicated that the Casa for All plan has gone through several phases in which bottlenecks were first identified. Then came the articulation of agreements with Decentralized Autonomous Governments (GAD) to identify more than 1,300 plots in the country, 130 of them to be built as a “high priority to deliver”.
“After this, we will continue with the national call for the construction sector to be” your strategic ally for the implementation of the Casa para Todos plan “. The lands available or identified have the proper cadastral valuation and in conditions to be endowed with basic services.
Lenin Moreno said that this initiative seeks to accelerate the implementation of 325,000 homes. “If we do not move forward we will leave everything for the next President to continue working”. He pointed out that this is a great incentive. “The wealth is not generated by the Government; it provides the tools for entrepreneurs and citizens to generate it”. Among the attendees were Enrique Pita, president of the Federation of Chambers of Construction; Jaime Rumbea, director of the Association of Real Estate Developers of Housing of Ecuador, and Richard Martinez, president of the Ecuadorian Business Committee.
In Jaramijó, Portoviejo, Guayaquil and Quito, housing plans are being built that will form part of the 20,000 houses planned in the first phase. These places were identified as those with the greatest housing deficit.
60% of the houses are built on the Coast, 35% in the Sierra, 5% in the Amazon.
191,000 homes will be free for people of extreme poverty. 134,000 are co-pay solutions from $ 35,000.
Head of State insisted on the need for consultation Part of his speech, which lasted about an hour, the Head of State dedicated to question the previous Government, but also referred to the referendum and consultation on 4 February.
On the seven questions, he emphasized those that refer to the indefinite re-election and the cessation of the Council of Citizen Participation and Social Control (CPCCS). He insisted that instead the creation of a transitional commission composed of short lists sent by the Executive, for subsequent approval in the National Assembly.
In this regard, he said he has not yet “thought of the names to form the short lists that will replace the current CPCCS councilors”, in case of winning the Yes. Once again he extended the invitation to the business associations and the general public to postulate names, in order to include them.
On indefinite re-election he criticized the previous government because, in his opinion, he had ten years and no political training schools were created to promote youth leadership. Another issue he referred to was the fight against corruption, after dismissing the megaconstructions such as the Pacific Refinery, which, he said, has been difficult to find financing.
However, he said that by January 30 will open the first round of negotiations in which about 30 companies are interested and that the National Government has selected between 10 and 12 offers to choose the best proposal.
He insisted on asking citizens to report any corruption they detect. After this he said goodbye singing a song in favor of the Yes and said he will continue with his policy of dialogues that in his opinion generates an atmosphere of peace in the country.
In the outskirts of Fedenador there were people who carried flags of political groups and pronounced slogans in favor of the popular consultation. (I)
