IN 1976, THE FINAL COST OF BUILDING INCREASED TWICE AS FAST AS IN 1975, AND THE GENERAL INCREASE OF LABOUR COSTS SHOULD BE SPECIALLY NOTED. THE FINANCIAL SITUATION OF THIS SECTOR KEEPS WORSENING. IN ADDITION TO THE GENERAL CAUSES WHICH INFLUENCE THE WHOLE ECONOMIC SYSTEM THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY IS AFFECTED BY OTHER FACTORS ARISING FROM CONTRACTS WITH THE STATE (THE MAIN CUSTOMER). IN SUMMARY, THE SITUATION IN THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY SEEMS STATIC.
