The abolition of the Investment Program began to create problems.
The construction sector is on the verge of collapse, due to the abolition of the Investment Program.
The effects have already begun to show, as sales have fallen by 80% in luxury homes, while industry representatives are talking about inevitable layoffs.
The construction industry pays the heavy price of abolishing the Naturalization Program for foreign investors. Almost all construction companies have started firing or are on the verge of firing staff, due to the tragic number of sales.
The President of the Association of Large Developments, Andreas Dimitriadis states in Economy Today that “the problems have already been seen. In terms of sales in luxury housing, there is a reduction of 75% -80%. Almost all construction companies have started firing staff or are on the verge of firing because they do not have the necessary liquidity to keep their staff. “20% of the sales that are being made, at the moment, were already agreed”.
