Minister of Development on the “Apartment to start” program
– We are currently conducting very extensive consultations. However, I must emphasize one thing, that this is only one piece of the puzzle, because we are conducting consultations on the supply program, on the demand program, in terms of assistance for borrowers, but also on social construction, social housing, which is equally important to us – said the head of the Ministry of Development and Technology.

The interest rate and subsidy amount will depend on the number of children in the household. We want to address this program very precisely to families – added.
