The mobilization of investment resources is a key problem of economic recovery and sustainable long-term economic growth. A restrained decline in investment activity in the acute phase of the coronavirus pandemic crisis determined the starting conditions for business activity in the construction and investment complex in early 2021. In Q1 2021, the growth of investments in fixed assets amounted to 2% compared to the same period of the previous year, with an outstripping growth of investments in manufacturing and socially oriented types of economic activities.

Key words: investment, investment in fixed assets, investment and construction complex.
