YEKATERINBURG, November 28 (Itar-Tass) —— President Dmitry Medvedev said the federal authorities and the business community should overcome the gap in “the agenda” of problems between regions and the centre.
Speaking at a meeting with representatives of small business and United Russia activists on Monday, November 28, Medvedev stressed that there is a gap “in the agenda” between regions and the federal centre.
“The capital is often unaware of the problems in regions,” he said, adding that for some the focus is on new jobs and for others it is on schools.
“We must find the strength to understand that the country is bigger than the capital. The country and its leadership should not be concerned solely with the problems of the capital. Everybody should try to overcome this gap in the ‘agenda’, both federal public servants and entrepreneurs from the centre of the country,” the president said.
