ArmInfo. Prime Minister of Armenia Karen Karapetyan convened a meeting on February 21, during which representatives of construction companies discussed issues related to simplifying the procedures for building permits and prospects for the development of the construction sector. Governmental press service told ArmInfo.
At the meeting, the Prime Minister noted that the government attaches great importance to the development of the construction sector and is ready to discuss ways of solving existing problems in this format of periodic meetings, as well as to listen to proposals to stimulate business programs.
Representatives of construction companies touched upon a number of issues related to improving the legislative and pricing regulatory field in construction, as well as simplifying tax administration, clarifying cadastral procedures, etc.
The Prime Minister instructed the representatives of the concerned departments within a week to discuss possible solutions to the above mentioned problems with the developers, and Karapetyan, the head of the State Committee for urban development, instructed to sum up the results of the discussions and report.
K. Karapetyan drew the attention of builders and developers to the possibilities of development of tourism and infrastructure in the country's regions. According to him, there is a mixed situation in Jermuk and Tsaghkadzor, due to the fact that hotels are being built in Jermuk, but the invested funds pay off quite late. "We invest money, but we do not do anything with regard to infrastructures, and after all, the costs pay off only after 2 years." Note Vanadzor and Gyumri: until December 7, the center of Gyumri - the square and the adjacent street, will be in very good condition. We should not put efforts solely on the construction of apartments".
