Academic district to create 3,000 jobs

10 April 2009 (14:19)

‘Yekaterinburg’s future Academic district is currently under construction, so people are employed there almost on 24/7 basis. A group of Czech delegates visited the site recently, surprised at seeing the builders start their work as early as 7 AM,’ Deputy Chairman of Sverdlovsk Region Legislation Assembly’s Duma Nail Shaimardanov said to an UrBC reporter.

The official reports about 1,000 people were employed at the site at the beginning of 2009, with the figure to rise to 3,000 in the nearest future. This means that Renova StroyGroup, the project investor is creating new jobs, needed so badly at the time of economic instability.

As a matter of fact, Head of Russian Government Vladimir Putin announced recently that it was the housing construction that was the driving force of the country’s economy.

‘Academic district has already got a program providing for housing for the military and the socially vulnerable citizens,’ Shaimardanov explained.
