MOSCOW, October 10 (Itar-Tass) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will manage to do his utmost to fulfil his policy objectives during seven months of his staying in office, his advisor Arkady Dvorkovich told reporters on Monday.
“The president has to work on his post for another seven months before a new president is sworn in and for this time much can be done,” he said.
“And we will do our utmost to fulfil the tasks set in the previous three years – on social policy, the improvement of investment climate, modernization, the creation of a financial hub and healthcare development,” Dvorkovich said.
He cited as an example the adoption of a new law on health protection.
“The president hopes that the law will be adopted this year,” the advisor said that debates on the law have been underway. “I am confident that a version to be finalized by the parliament will serve the interests of the healthcare system, while the incumbent and future presidents will actively promote this law and spend heavy funds on it.”
