09 December 2016
According to the official website of the President of the Russian Federation, Mr Putin made this announcement at a Security Council session dedicated to the draft Economic Security Strategy.
“We must pay particular attention to ensuring balanced regional development”, the President said. “It is imperative to maximize the potential of every region within Russia. We must continue to create new companies and jobs, that is, the basic conditions for demographic development and a rising standard of living. Taking into account the importance of this region and its proximity to the major Asia-Pacific economies, we are establishing competitive conditions for business which are as favourable (in the full sense of the word) as possible. We will strictly maintain the conditions we have created for investors, be they domestic or foreign.”
