Infrastructure and Construction

Consequences of the global financial and economic crisis have had a negative impact on the development of construction branch of Ukraine and led to rapid decrease of volumes of construction works in 2008-2010. Despite this fact the construction industry remains one of the fundamental industries of the Ukrainian economy accounting for 2-3% of GDP.

Most specialists estimate positively the prospects of development of the construction industry over the next several years, considering the number of factors. Firstly, strong demand for residential and commercial real estate continues to exist in Ukraine; secondly, renewal of mortgage crediting will increase the volumes of the financing of construction works; and, thirdly, a mighty stimulus for the development of the construction branch will become realization of big construction and infrastructure projects out of the state funds and at the expense of big private investors in the framework of Ukraine’s preparation for staging the European Football Championship ‘Euro 2012’.
