Commentary-interview of the Deputy Director General for Corporate Governance and Property A.S. Starostin
In 2015, the Company achieved good results in terms of consolidation. The last three years were marked by active work: the simplified electronic application submission system has started to bring results. However, the overall economic downturn caused reduction of construction volumes, decrease in the number of potential consolidation objects, i.e., new grids of real estate developers. The electric facilities of individuals (first of all, owners of countryside houses and summerhouse communities) often do not meet the technical requirements and therefore cannot be accepted for registration on the balance.
