Current Objectives in Developing the Housing Construction Market on the African Continent
Governmental structures from both the Russian Federation and our partners present here today, need to figure out investment protection mechanisms. We need to work out a framework that will protect our investors that will work outside the boundaries of the Russian Federation and come into the markets of our partners. The investor needs to return the investment and make something on top

Current Objectives in Developing the Housing Construction Market on the African Continent
I know that the majority of my colleagues here lack experienced construction companies that are ready to build quality real estate. From my end, I would like to state that the Russian companies are interested in Africa. We need to work on the governmental level to create the necessary environment so that the Russian companies could share their competences and enter the markets on simple and transparent terms

Transforming the Construction Industry to Increase the Investment Potential of Far Eastern Regions
Since 2012, the cost of construction has increased by about 40% on average across the country. <...> With the help of the deflating index, we compensated only about 24% for the increase in the cost of construction by 40%. 16% is a net withdrawal from the industry. We received dried estimates, the price of contracts where there was no profit, and, unfortunately, it showed quite a bit of losses there. As a result, the number of bankruptcies of medium-sized and large enterprises has doubled over the past four years

Transforming the Construction Industry to Increase the Investment Potential of Far Eastern Regions
Today we are working with the expert community on writing the industry strategy until 2030. The task we have set for ourselves is <...> to hear out all the experts and get a document in which all the necessary subsections will be present. <...> To date, more than a thousand experts have participated in putting this document together. They have worked in 11 project teams across main areas of the strategy

Transforming the Construction Industry to Increase the Investment Potential of Far Eastern Regions
One of the main directions we are working on today is information modelling in construction. <...> On 1 July 2019, Federal Law No. 151 came into force, which introduced the concepts of information modelling and of construction information classifier. All this is now present in the Urban Planning Code

Today, the issues of urban environment development are relevant all around the globe.

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
Much depends on the regional authorities. Among other things, they create such prerequisites as regional and local tax benefits, additional support incentives, and business subsidies. Public-private partnership brings about good practices, when the economy is updated, business brings new interesting technological solutions, uses new materials, and after a certain period of time we see that the system of public utilities is fundamentally changing

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
Currently, the Ministry is working on a housing and utilities sector strategy. We want this document to be as public as possible, so that as many representatives of the expert community as possible take part in the discussion of this project. At the same time, given that we are engaged in both construction, and housing and utilities – and these are the two sectors that go hand in hand – there are a lot of intersections. Therefore, we now have an important task of intersecting these strategies with each other. <...> In the near future, we must finish our work on this programme and introduce the first draft to the Government. I think there will be a serious discussion

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
Today, the tariff regulation that exists in the Russian Federation. <...> is the main problem why business stay away from investment in housing and communal services. We are constantly looking for a middle ground. Somewhere it is possible, in some territories of the Russian Federation, it goes better, in some it goes worse. <...> We are talking about small towns. We are talking about rural areas, that include a low tariff base, a rather troublesome economy, and a small amount of financial resources in this system. Of course, this does not attract business there. Therefore, the position of the Ministry in this regard, <...> when we talk about small towns and, of course, when we talk about rural areas, under today's system of tariff regulation, we should rely on budget support

Reform of the Construction Industry. Transition to a New Mechanism of Housing Construction
There is an instruction by the President. When he addressed the Federal Assembly, he set a task to develop a product equivalent to mortgage: when a person can borrow with an appropriate rate for a long term to build an individual house. Indeed, there is no such product yet, but we are working on it. There are quite a lot of problems here. Banks are cautious about land plots and future houses – this is not enough to issue enough money for construction. Apartment is more liquid than individual house

If developers apply for project financing to one of the banks on the list approved by the Russian government that must work with escrow accounts, and it does not accept the application, they need to report that. Such things should not happen. All banks from the list must do this type of work

Reform of the Construction Industry. Transition to a New Mechanism of Housing Construction
The biggest problem that we will have to carefully go through is that there will be a massive flow of requests in the regions seeking confirmation of construction readiness of the object to get the right to work according to the old rules. The initial volume of documents that will be received by the regions will be massive. However, there is nothing to panic about

The Transformation of Russia’s Construction, Housing and Utilities Industry
Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko instructed us to develop a strategy for construction industry up till 2030, and this is what we have been doing. Deputy Prime Minister has set the following objective: we need to come up with a set of documents discussed at as many platforms as possible, with maximum involvement of the expert community, so that it does not put us to shame later. It cannot be a distortion, or just another report on another strategy completed

In the perspective of improvement, we should think that the environment that we are creating would be multi-functional, that the population could use it during very long winters and very short summers. <…> A lot of attention is paid to lighting. <…> We need energy-efficient buildings that are more expensive because of permafrost

Best Practices for Socioeconomic Development: Integrated Solutions for the Regions and Cities
The President of the Russian Federation has given the Ministry a separate directive that we are working on — multiple-use projects. We recently inventoried our collection of multiple-use projects and determined that we have approximately 800 of them. Of them, only about 35 are ready for use, as the others require some serious work before they can be implemented. But if this databank is continuously improved upon, then it will help save the subjects of the Russian Federation time and an enormous amount of money in their active participation in the National Projects

Best Practices for Socioeconomic Development: Integrated Solutions for the Regions and Cities
Right now, we have some serious work ahead of us. Six years of implementing national projects that require serious, systematic work. Leveraging best practices could yield a serious advantage in achieving these objectives, because now we can turn to a data bank and get these solutions. We also end up gaining the opportunity to save a lot of time and money when implementing projects. <...> Everything related to best practices and techniques is a vital institution supporting the development of our country

Regional Policy in the Context of Russia’s Spatial Development
As for the current work, over the past years we have largely lost our skills and, firstly, we need to talk about engineering, because the engineering companies that are present on the market today — and a good project is 80% of success — there are almost none left. That Soviet school of engineering which we had, which then became Russian school — unfortunately, the 1990s took their toll on it and even in the 2000s it kept being ruined. Therefore, when we talk about strong engineering institutes, organizations that can work on serious projects today — such organizations can be counted on fingers of two hands

We are currently in a complex transition period, where the banking system must be proactive and support the projects currently being implemented by the construction industry. Today, banking support, which all of our current construction and residential developers depend on, is in a tough spot. There are new regulations being developed, there are a lot of inconsistencies, and already accepted legislation needs more clarification

Each region of the Russian Federation is looking for financial instruments to support small and medium-sized businesses. For more than 10 years we have been working with an instrument to subsidize the first instalment of leasing payments. When we go through a leasing operation, we understand that equipment is being purchased and, accordingly, small and medium-sized business is growing technologically.
