"We hope that with this appointment and swearing in can help the holder of the portfolio to succeed in the mission he has been carrying out for some time," the president said.
The Ministry of Public Works, Urbanism and Housing (MINOPUH) is the auxiliary body of the Holder of Executive Power, which is responsible for proposing the formulation of policies, executing and controlling the programmes and projects of the Executive in the areas of its activity.
