Opening remarks at a meeting with the public
President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon, friends and colleagues.
Today’s events in Kazan will be the start of a series of meetings, conferences and discussions like this. The subject of these events will be the national projects, which we are launching to ensure forward progress in Russia in key development areas.
As you know, we have allocated a great deal of funding for this and have adopted decisions on funding sources and priority areas for development. Now we must make all this run as smoothly as a Swiss watch and create the mechanisms and instruments necessary for attaining our goals.
To be continued.
