Residential district built in a month
By Andrey Serovsky
720 apartments — built by Belarusian and Venezuelan specialists — were commissioned in the Venezuelan city of Maracay, Aragua State, on New Year’s Eve. Another 1,800 apartments are to be commissioned soon, built with the participation of Belarusians, for occupation by Venezuelan families who lost their homes during the devastating floods of late 2011, as well as those badly in need of housing.
Taking part in the solemn ceremony of commissioning the new apartments was the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Belarus to Venezuela, H.E. Mr. Valentin Gurinovich. He praises the high level of co-operation between Belarus and Venezuela in housing construction, telling us that, in January 2012, Belarus will complete construction of a plant producing building materials in Guarenas Guatire (Miranda State) and plants producing Belarusian tractors and trucks.
Belarusian specialists are currently building about 20,000 apartments in Venezuela, in addition to agro-towns and a plant to manufacture road construction machinery. In line with agreements reached by Alexander Lukashenko and Hugo Chavez, Belarusians are helping with a major state housing construction programme in Venezuela.
