Immigrants’ housing will be reduced by two-thirds in the next fiscal year–4,000 apartments as compared with 12,000 started this year. The Treasury believes the Housing Ministry has already started work on more apartments than are needed. Over the past two years, housing was built for an expected influx of 45,000 to 50,000 immigrants a year, but fewer than 40,000 a year arrived. The Treasury is pressing the Housing Ministry to cut back, arguing that if the immigrant flow increases, more money for housing can be appropriated.
