Mr. Bakyzhan Sagintaev, the Minister of Economy and Financial Policy of the Eurasian Economic Committee, has become the special guest and welcomed the members of the Congress.
“Full scale operation of the single construction service market will favor dynamic development of the industry, improve the competitive ability, and increase the scope of construction services. At the present time, there are 83 (major part) types of construction and engineering services shifted to the single market. We keep doing our job on arrangement of the conditions for smooth operation and expansion of the single market of construction and related services, as well as we keep developing the cooperation within the industrial construction industry.”
The Congress delegates were welcomed by also the Chairman of the Urban Committee of the Government of the Republic of Armenia, Mr. Armen Guralyan.
“Development of industrial cooperation in such a complex and capital intensive sphere as construction will determinate the success of investment and construction projects. Now we are settling the foundation for team-work within the single market with our colleagues from friendly countries of the Greater Eurasia. It is of particular interest to note that logistics within this market will be arranged in national security zones that makes it critical factor in the context of current circumstances.”
“I would like to highlight that Russia’s construction industry is objectively closely linked with the EAEU economies as being the shared inheritance of the economic complex left by former USSR. At the present time, Russia is going through import substitution processes and total changing of logistic chains. Establishment of the regional construction technologic zone in the territory of EAEU countries requires close cooperation of national industry regulation bodies and the Eurasian Economic Commission. Resolution of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council on establishment of the single construction service market has become a great stride forward.
The Ministry of Construction, Housing and Utilities of the Russian Federation welcomes conduction of the Eurasian Construction Congress as being the first representative forum within EAEU zone allowing discussion of current questions in construction integration.”
