Marat Khusnullin: the Construction should be a driver of the entire economy

Mr Khusnullin! You were at the beginning of the renovation program in the capital. Tens of thousands of Muscovites have already celebrated the housewarming. As you consider whether a Federal program for renovation?

Marat Khusnullin: Renovation in Moscow went because the capital has already had experience of such work, was a professional team, able to solve the problem, was, finally, money. Can I say that tomorrow, the whole Russia is also ready to do a renovation? No, you can’t. The regions are all different. To approach this work holistically, need analysis and training. And the initiative must come from the regions – I am not a supporter stands on top of a uniform program. But to deal with dilapidated housing.

Marat Khusnullin: In accordance with it until 2024 will have to resettle people from 9 million square metres of dilapidated housing. This is the aim of a trillion rubles – 90% of the Federal budget and 10% from regional budgets and extrabudgetary sources. The task set by the President, and we are going to solve it.

last year, as you know, the projects are not very well funded. This year funding will be better?

Marat Khusnullin: Money in the national projects are large, the problems can be solved.

At a meeting in the Ministry, you said that housing construction in the country should be raised to 120 million square metres per year. This is a third more than now. Due to what you can do?

Marat Khusnullin: Task to achieve this figure came from President Vladimir Putin, and it’s aboutmeant in the national project. But miracles do not happen. To ensure such growth, it is necessary to solve a number of problems. First, to work with banks to reduce mortgage prices. Second, free sites in a number of regions there. We need to find them. Thirdly – ready building permits, there are only 103 million sqm, and it is necessary to have them twice. To get them, requires to overcome many administrative barriers. Each barrier is a waste of time. The longer we build, the more expensive – the sooner the cheaper. So I always do everything in order to build faster. That’s exactly what I’m doing right now, to remove all obstacles and to build as quickly as possible.

About the Tulun and elimination of consequences of emergency situation in the whole of the Irkutsk region. The new Governor declared that until 2022 the recovery of flood-affected settlements will be completed. Whether this work the control of the Federal center? Or regional authorities are unable to cope on their own?

Marat Khusnullin: For using the centre and addressed the people, the President ordered to help them. That means we need to continue to keep the situation under control, and I’ll keep. Likely to choose the time and fly there.

You say: the construction should be a driver of the entire economy. What to put in this concept?

Marat Khusnullin: in construction was a very large accumulative effect. If it works, they work all the builders, suppliers, services. Take the same Moscow. Its almost textilina budget 17% of the revenues derived from the construction. In Russia the figure is more modest – 6%, our task is to improve it. Why is it important? The construction industry employs 5.5 million people, and each job generates up to 5-6 places in withmezhnaya spheres – housing and communal services, trade, etc the successful development of the construction sector in many ways, the key to prosperity of the country as a whole.

please Rate the condition of local base construction. Experts say that we have only 10-15% of modern materials, while in Europe 40%. But it affects not only the quantity but also the quality of construction, its cost.

Marat Khusnullin: the building materials Industry we are one of the few industries through which the share of imports in the construction of a very seriously reduced and is now 10 to 30, rarely to the unique construction sites – up to 40%. But it is also necessary, because the investments there are a small businesses do not have enough money for upgrades and new construction. With the Ministry of industry, we have agreed that we will work together to think how to stimulate the development of the industry.

what can you say about the professionalism of our builders? In comparison with Chinese, German colleagues? There is a perception that our buildings operate mainly poorly trained workers…

Marat Khusnullin: the Problem lies elsewhere. We have too little of mechanization. Hence, a large number of employees utility works.

one solution is to introduce modern construction technology. To learn to manage well. Leave everything as is and not raise the productivity of labor we can’t afford.

in Discussing this issue on a conference call with the regions, Marat Khusnullin said.

– Rate mortgage at 9% I think is too high.

to Achieve the performance of the passport of the national project “Housing and the urban environment” without lowering mortgage rates is impossible, he said:

– We program in housing is not workable, if not solve the issue of the mortgage. Even if it is 5%, in our dreams, we need the cores to break, to build 120 million square metres and sell them. Can be built, and to whom we will sell? Or are we all driving in mortgage bondage under 9%, and people will not eat?
