Deputy Prime Minister Khusnullin said Russian construction will be accelerated
The government does not see any risks of a possible construction freeze due to the loss of the supply of imported materials and equipment. The future of the construction industry was predicted by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Marat Khusnullin during a meeting with President Vladimir Putin, RIA Novosti reports.
We are talking about the main construction projects under the federal three-year investment program – the authorities plan to accelerate work on these projects.
“The first task we set ourselves is to analyze all the facilities we have in our three-year program, how much they rely on import substitution, and how quickly we can revise them and do without import components. Fortunately, our share is small,’ explains Khusnullin.
On March 15, Khusnullin announced that the government had approved a second anti-crisis package to help the construction industry. Measures outlined in the document include lowering the conditions for making land available for construction and easing the payment of penalties for overdue energy bills.
