I general, he said, the economy is surviving bad times, and construction is always a risky investment. The decrease of the mortgage rate to 5% is one f the most important decisions of the “Growth strategy”. It does not cost much for the state, 150 bln roubles, but it will double the construction market of the country, Titov is sure.
