Greetings to current and former construction sector workers

August 9, 2017

Vladimir Putin sent his greetings to all taking part in events celebrating Construction Workers’ Day and congratulated all current and former workers in the sector.

The President said, in particular, in his message:

“I congratulate you on Construction Workers’ Day – the professional holiday of one of the most honoured and creative professions in the world.

Russia’s construction sector has always been distinguished by its top-class specialists united in their common cause and solid traditions. You build residential districts and industrial facilities, social and transport infrastructure, and make people’s lives better. I think you can take fully deserved pride in your achievements.

Today, the construction sector faces new tasks and demands, chief of which are to modernise the sector and raise its quality, make wider use of advanced technology and engineering solutions, and improve professional training in the sector.”
