Cuba’s Pressing Housing Deficit Situation

Cuba’s eight month old administration under President Miguel Diaz Canel has described reducing the country’s housing deficit a most pressing matter, as well as increasing food production.

When the Revolution triumphed on January 1, sixty years ago, Cuban society was widely stratified with a large part of the population living in conditions of shocking inequality, from poor neighborhoods to luxury hotels and high-rise buildings that decorate Havana’s beachfront.

Back then, the national housing deficit stood at one million homes. Today, the figure remains much the same: 920,000, with the reality of nearly 6 million more inhabitants than before.
