Diaz-Canel has noted that the plan must consider the needs and priorities of each territory, and has insisted that it is necessary to build quality homes.
Furthermore, he has referred to the robustness that must characterize these constructions, so that they are less vulnerable to the effects caused by meteorological phenomena.
