ArmInfo. In the construction sector of Armenia, there are problems that prevent more complete static data in this area. Prime Minister Karen Karapetyan announced this at a government meeting on 2 November.
According to him, the studies carried out by the State Committee for Urban Development showed that during the collection of statistical data in the construction sector there are obstacles that reduce the usefulness of obtaining statistical data, especially regarding the volume of construction work carried out by private companies.
In order to more fully present statistical data and assess the real situation, the Prime Minister instructed the Minister of Territorial Administration and Development of the Republic of Armenia, the Chairman of the National Statistical Service and the Chairman of the State Committee for Urban Development within two weeks to generalize trends and developments in the field of urban development, to submit proposals to the Government to eliminate existing shortcomings.
Recall that on August 11 this year, at a festive event dedicated to the Day of the Builder, the Armenian Prime Minister noted that the government is making efforts in the direction of implementing construction and investment programs in the country, stimulating the urban development. "I want to state that there are clear tendencies in activity in the construction sector, and we are confident that we will make progress in terms of increasing the pace of construction," Karen Karapetyan said. According to the Prime Minister, the statistics for the first half of 2016 indicate that there are still 2 areas lagging behind - construction and agriculture. "According to our forecasts, in the construction sector in October we will approach the figure that will reimburse the pace of the past year, and in the annual section we will have growth," the head of government said at the time.
According to the National Statistical Service of Armenia, in January-September 2017 in the sphere of town- planning works were executed for 220.3 billion drams, which is 6.4% less than the same period of the previous year.
