Cuba plans to build 14,000 plastic homes a year to help ease a national housing shortage. Set to begin in September, the program will use polyvinyl chloride from a petrochemical facility to be built with Venezuelan aid at a refinery in Cienfuegos, Prensa Latina said. “Cuba will produce more than 14,000 houses annually with polyvinyl chloride, thanks to a bi-national project with Venezuela,” project director Julian Alonso told the news agency. Cuba is said to need about half a million homes to provide sufficient housing for its people. (Reuters)
