YAROSLAVL, September 7 (Itar-Tass) —— New development of Moscow and expansion of its territory will let the city become one of global leading megapolises, Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said on Wednesday.
“Moscow’s new development will bring additional revenues for working citizens and will raise the level of social protection of a maximum number of Muscovites,” he said. “Living will be safer from the ecological point of view, and Moscow and Russia will be able to get integrated into the European space not as separate outlying districts, but as one of its centres of development.”
Moscow’s new development will let the city use its global potential and “join the global leading megapolises,” like New York, Tokyo, London and Paris, he said during the World Political Forum in Yaroslavl.
“Moscow’s living standards will comply more with modern concepts of justice, harmony and wellbeing,” he continued.
In order to join the global leading cities, Moscow should become a common agglomeration, where the economy would be able to function on the basis of a mutually connected system of settlements and of convenient technological chains, he said. Sobyanin explained that he meant the organisation of Moscow’s big agglomeration and the development of a circle of cities in the Moscow Region’ s western and southern parts.
He added that without radical changes Muscovites will face deeper misbalance between the places where they live and where they work.
“When in reality people live not at home, but in transport, on the way to work or from work,” he explained.
