The president of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has examined a construction and reconstruction progress of objects prepared to the SCO and BRICS Summits in Ufa. Rustem Khamitov has visited construction sites of hotels near Gostiny Dvor ("Holiday Inn" hotel) and the Congress Hall ("Hilton"), and also being reconstructed "Neftynik" recreation centre and the Congress Hall.

Works at all objects are conducted ahead of schedule. For example, the main civil works in hotel at the Congress Hall were planned to be finished in March, 2014. However, according to builders, the works will be completed already in January.

Also Rustem Khamitov during his working trip has visited "Ufa" river port. Here he has examined a quay and an outdoor exposition of anchors. He discussed issues of the territory development with the river port management. The port does not function in full force — the last passenger on the route «Ufa — Moscow» departed on July 20. Now steamships go in this direction from Dyurtyuly town.

Rustem Khamitov has charged Ufa management to find means and methods "to recover and revive" the territory of the river port.
