ZHABINKA, 20 July (BelTA) – The third stage of the project for building public welfare houses using China's technical and economic aid will begin in Brest Oblast by the end of the year, BelTA learned from Brest Oblast Vice Governor Vadim Olshevsky on 20 July.

The public welfare housing construction project provides for building two houses in Brest Oblast: a 108-apartment house in Baranovichi and a 90-apartment house in Stolin. The two houses are estimated at over ¥30 million. The blueprints have already been submitted for consideration and approval to the Chinese side. “We intend to launch the third stage of the project together with China this year. The public welfare housing construction program goes well in Brest Oblast. All the houses are commissioned on time,” stressed Vadim Olshevsky.

Chinese investments were used to build four public welfare houses in Brest Oblast during the first stage of the project: two homes in Brest and another two in Pinsk. The second stage of the project, which provides for building 184 public welfare apartments in three cities, began in January 2018. The planned amount of work was finished within half a year. In particular, a house able to accommodate 40 families in need of better housing was commissioned in Zhabinka. Tenants moved into the house today ahead of tomorrow's Zhabinka City Day.

This house has helped alleviate the problem of finding homes for orphans and families with children with disabilities as well as large families. “I am convinced that the new tenants will get a true home here, will settle down firmly in Zhabinka, and will work for the prosperity of the native land,” said the head of the Zhabinka District administration Dmitry Gorodetsky.

The construction of an 81-apartment house in Baranovichi and a 63-apartment house in Pinsk has been finished as well. China Railway No.9 Group is the general contractor for building these homes. The Brest Oblast civil engineering company Brestzhilstroy is a subcontractor.

First Secretary for Trade and Economic Affairs of the Embassy of China in Belarus Chen Youjin said: “The implementation of this project reflects friendliness and the sincerity of the Chinese nation's attitude to Belarusians. It is a vivid example of strategic partnership between our countries. In the future we will continue working together to implement the agreements reached by the leaders of the two countries during the Shanghai Cooperation Organization summit in Qingdao, including the implementation of the third stage of the project to build public welfare homes and other priority projects.”
