Cuba promotes private building material production
As part of a push to boost homebuilding and renovation by involving the
private sector, the ministry of construction (MICONS) certified
privately owned building material companies in Havana province, official
news service AIN reported.
The idea is to inform private company owners about quality standards for
building materials sold to private homeowners. Many of the bricks and
tiles produced by self-employed Cubans don't adhere to official norms,
according to AIN.
