The enlarged meeting has taken place today in the Ministry of building, architecture and transport RB, where the most painful problems of the branch in the region were under discussion. The head of the Ministry Ravil Ibatullin urged the heads of industrial and building enterprise to revise their production programs, the staff and the assortment, facing the highest demand, anew and to start investigating the nearest sales markets. All abovementioned is directly connected with the heavy state of things, observed in the building industry.

The index of industrial production in 2009 made up 72,4%. The output volumes in 2009 have dropped approximately two times, as compared with 2008, and that in its turn resulted in the reduction of the number of workers and wages in the building branch. In particular, very difficult situation is observed in brick production now. In 2009 more than 374 million pieces of brick have been produced in the Republic and this is much less than in 2008. That time the number of brick, produced in Bashkortostan, exceeded 537 million pieces.

For today the building complex RB combines more than five thousand large, medium and small enterprises, engaged in designing and production of building materials, building, reconstruction, technical rearmament and major repair of the building objects and every enterprise is actively looking for the way out of the crisis.
