The first symptoms of recession became visible long before the first effects of the world economic crisis, being determined primarily by supply-side shocks. Lately, the crisis generated an additional demand-side shock which aggravated the situation in the sector. The main policy measures for the constructions’ sector take off, which would complement those already planned by the Government should include: (i) VAT withdrawal for construction works from 2010 for 2-3 years; (ii) development of mortgage programs for young families with at least 1 child; (iii) application of a state guarantee for the first contribution necessary for contracting a mortgage; (iv) development of infrastructural projects financed from the state budget, as well as from foreign assistance and (v) simplification of the procedures for issuing the construction permits.
