On May 17 the Kremlin hosted a session of the RF Federal Council on developing the construction sector and improving the urban planning.
As Vladimir Putin, President of Russia, noted: “It is obvious that we should establish and legislate standards of construction mandatory to comply with”.
The session results that bear upon the heating equipment market are as follows:
– The State Duma is considering a draft federal law that will allow monitoring construction material prices. In this connection it would be reasonable for heating equipment manufacturers to start paying more attention to optimizing the distribution of their goods.
– Heating equipment and systems will be given special attention while implementing the state policy of enhancing energy efficiency of buildings and constructions.
– Low percent of waste recycling in manufacturing construction material appears to be one of the reasons for high production costs and, consequently, low competitiveness of the industry.
