Olivera said that CUBACONS seeks to partner with foreign companies to promote new technology acquisition and financing that guarantees high-quality standards in construction projects.

The construction sector in Cuba is prioritized by the new economic policy because of the value it has in the development of the tourism sector, a major driver of income to the Island.

The use of new sustainable and effective technologies is a priority of these investment projects.

In 2019, the construction sector executed projects for a total value of 6.1 billion pesos, according to the Statistical Yearbook of Cuba, published in 2020.
