The outlook for the construction sector which has mainly been affected by the ongoing recession depends on the investment opportunities that arise for the construction of infrastructure works such as roads, ports, marinas, airports, hotel complexes and vacation housing, energy networks and renewable energy sources, in conjunction with the existing ERDF (European Regional Development Fund) funds that can be absorbed and applied to such investments, and concurrently with increased Community participation.
