Lukashenko warns against extremely high housing construction costs

MINSK, 4 June (BelTA) – Belarus President Alexander Lukashenko reaffirmed the requirements to the cost of one square meter of housing for those on the housing waiting lists. The cost should not exceed the average salary in the country, Belarus’ President Alexander Lukashenko said during a meeting on housing issues on 4 June.

“People complain on the mounting costs of housing, protraction of construction and low quality of building works,” the President noted.

“My requirement remains unchanged: the square meter of housing for those on the waiting list should not be higher than the average salary in the country. If the average salary is $300, then the price of a square meter should be as high. If the average salary is $500, a square meter for people on the housing waiting lists should be $500, not $1,500-2,000,” stressed the head of state.

The President reminded the meeting participants that he voiced his requirements for the construction industry at a government session on 1 March and addressed them specifically to Minister Anatoly Nichkasov and Deputy Prime Minister Anatoly Kalinin. “Three months have passed. Today I hope to hear clear answers on the status of the effort to address the problems,” said the head of state. Alexander Lukashenko underlined that the regulatory framework to implement the concept of state housing policy is being completed. However, it is clear that the regulatory framework itself cannot ensure a complete success. Everything depends on people, primarily on workers of the housing construction industry, specialists and executives,” said the head of state.
