The building permits figures of H1 2018, a leading economic indicator, almost matched those of the respective period of 2012, fuelled by incentives to the construction industry offered by the government aimed at boosting both demand and supply. They include Golden Visas for property buyers, reduced taxes as well as generous town planning relaxations.
