So, just Gosarhstroyinspektsiya will hold the licensing works for the development of urban planning documentation, design and construction of tall buildings, restoration of urban development, licensing entities non-residents.
Draft Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers "On Amendments to the Licensing of certain types of economic activities in construction" will be considered in next Thursday at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee.
