On June 10, at a meeting on issues of using federal land lots for housing construction at Tatarstan Government House, First Deputy Chairman of Russian Government Igor Shuvalov said that Tatarstan has a good experience of implementing projects in different spheres, including the construction industry.
Tatarstan President Rustam Minnikhanov, Director General of the Federal Housing Construction Promotion Fund Denis Filippov, heads of Russian and Tatarstan relevant ministries and agencies, and major construction companies took part in the meeting.
Shuvalov reminded that Russian President Vladimir Putin said that not less than 1 square metres of housing per capita should be constructed annually. He mentioned certain difficulties in the process of using land lots. For example, regions use only fifth part of lands of the total amount of provided lots.
Shuvalov approved the use of federal lands for housing construction as it will give impetus to increasing the volume of construction in the region.
