Bashkortostan preserves the first position in Volga federal district and the fifth one in Russia by the volumes of house-building, the Prime-Minister of Government RB Rail Sarbaev stated at the last meeting of Government RB, devoted to the house-building in the Republic in 2009 and to the aims of the Republican goal-oriented housing program-2010.

“Two million 352 thousand square meters of housing have been put into exploitation in 2009 – at the level of 2008” – the Prime-Minister reported.

Only Moscow, Moscow region, Saint-Petersburg and Krasnodar have managed to erect more housing in 2009 than Bashkortostan.

Low building is considered the prior direction of the Republican housing program and steady annual growth of its volumes is observed since 2001. More than 1,9 million square meters of such housing have been built up in Bashkortostan in 2009 – by 11,9% more than in 2008.

Because of the crisis the erection of tenements face serious difficulties. The problems with the liquidity in the bank sector turned mass crediting to zero and hypothec crediting first of all. As the first deputy Minister of building, architecture and transport RB Ramil Khalimov said, in 2009 one billion 855 million rubles of hypothec credits have been given to population RB in a whole – just 18,4% of the crediting volumes-2008. The need in housing in the Republic is high but the solvent demand of population is extremely low.

The measures of state support within the frames of the federal goal-oriented program “Housing” help to stimulate the building sphere. In particular, veterans of the Great Patriotic War received state support for improvement of their living conditions for the sum of 334,6 million rubles. 847 young families have received state support for the sum of 253,4 million rubles. 353,4 million rubles was allocated for support of specialists of the Republican agricultural complex – 488 families have made the use of these means. Republican budget allocated 500 million rubles for development of social housing hypothec crediting. 200 million rubles of this sum was transferred to the authorized capital stock of the state unitary enterprise “The House-Building Fund”, 100 million rubles – to the state unitary enterprise “Low Building Management” and other 200 million were transferred to JSC “BASHPROMBANK” as the resources for crediting. The financial support of the Republic allowed erecting about 1000 individual cottages in the villages SHAMONINO and ZUKOVO by the end of 2009. In the future the Government RB intends to spread the experience of Ufa suburbs on the whole territory of Bashkortostan. More than 10 thousand houses expected to erect for five years.
