Lukashenko demands increased focus on construction sector


It is necessary to pay utmost attention to the construction industry, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at the government meeting to discuss the country's economic performance in 2022 and map out plans to address social and economic development tasks for 2023, BelTA has learned.

According to Aleksandr Lukashenko, this also applies to big unfinished projects, in particular those abandoned by international banks, and, of course, the construction of housing, including rental housing, with the possibility of transferring this housing into ownership to certain categories of citizens under certain conditions.

“The architecture minister is responsible for every square meter and for the amount of construction and installation works. Keep it under control. Excuses that you tried but failed will no longer be accepted. All the government's obligations to create infrastructure in the regions that were declared at the Belarusian People's Congress and laid out in five-year plans must be fulfilled. The government needs to find resources for this together with the National Bank. Regional executive committees and the Construction and Architecture Ministry are responsible for the infrastructure construction,” the president emphasized.
