Directors of construction firms expect the sector’s output to increase 5.6% this year, and 3.7% in 2019. Infrastructure and small and medium-sized firms should be doing the best. Poor legislation, labor shortages, and public sector corruption are the biggest impediments, according to the survey by CEEC Research. Last year, the sector’s output was up 2.9%. At present, companies have contracts keeping them busy for the coming ten months, compared to 7.6 months at the end of 2017.
