Strategies for construction industry and housing and public utilities development will be synchronized
Duration of the Russian construction industry development strategy can be extended for 5 years to synchronize it with the strategy of housing and public utilities development. Dmitry Volkov, the deputy head of Minstroy, mentioned it during the plenary meeting at the international exhibition BATIMAT Russia’2020.
We had a disconnect between the strategy of construction industry and the housing and public utilities strategy. The housing and public utilities strategy is up to 2035, while the construction strategy is up to 2030. The government asked our opinion, whether these dates should be equalized, <…> to extend the construction industry development strategy till 2035. I really hope that this decision will be taken”, – said Dmitry Volkov.
Moreover, according to the deputy head of Minstroy, they discussed the possibility of uniting these strategies, but this decision had not been taken yet.
“We decided to have two strategies. However since they raise pretty much same issues by one third, <…> it would be a good idea to seek to combine these strategies. We have not decided it yet, but we continue the discussion”, – added Dmitry Volkov.
