Keeping in mind that after all builders need to use more of borrowed funds during the construction of houses, and still more citizens correctly and securely buy apartments in newly built houses, not to invest at stage zero construction with unclear consequences,” – said Finance Minister Anton Siluanov after a meeting, answering a question of deputies of the state Duma of the “deceived investors”.
According to the Minister, “if we abandon the shared construction, this decision is not today, of course, is for the future.” At the moment the builders to attract funds of investors, “because there are no shareholders, no construction loans are very expensive,” said Siluanov. However, as the Minister said, the lower interest rates in the economy “all the same, and the reduction of construction costs will be resolved.”
