Likewise, «one of the lessons that the former president pointed out to me was that we need a very great interministerial and interinstitutional coordination because without it the processes do not advance. On the other hand, the need to have flexible instruments that can respond to different territorial realities because it is not the same to rebuild a housing sector that is a complex built by Serviu 30 or 40 years ago.»
