In Russia, the number of facilities built by Belarusians is increasing. They, notes Aleksey Shilo, can and are ready to build objects of any category of complexity, since they have the full range of specialties:
- To work in foreign markets, the government created “Belstroycenter-holding”, which includes 17 leading companies. This is about 15,000 qualified specialists providing almost all types of services. Including engineering services, industrial and civil construction, construction of turnkey facilities, engineering communications, landscaping, construction of railways and roads, bridges… The holding is armed with more than five thousand units of specialized equipment. The subsidiaries of the holding company are ISO 9001 certified.
Given the external economic situation, the expert notes, Russia today remains the main direction of the Belarusian construction complex. These are the border regions, the central, northwestern and southern federal districts of Russia, Moscow and St. Petersburg. According to Aleksey Shilo, housing construction projects are being successfully implemented in the Kaluga, Kursk, Kaliningrad and Bryansk regions of St. Petersburg. Pre-contractual negotiations are underway with the administrations of several Russian regions.

– Our specialists are engaged in the construction of port infrastructure in the village of Ust-Luga in the Leningrad region, work is underway on the technical re-equipment of an oil refinery in the city of Kirishi and the construction of a new line of a cement plant in Chechnya.
Cooperation with the Kaluga and Voronezh regions concerns the construction of social and cultural facilities and residential buildings.

Most of the funding is supposed to come from the Russian budget.
The administration of the Bobrovsky municipal district of the Voronezh region discusses participation in the implementation of a project for the integrated development of rural settlements using street house kits “Newsprint Plant” to create a “Belarusian Quarter” . Now mansion projects are being developed with the factory.
