MOSCOW, December 22 (Itar-Tass) — President Dmitry Medvedev said the state should return to stimulating the system of voluntary pension accumulations of citizens.
This move should be done as far as the consequences of the global economic crisis are overcome, Medvedev said in his annual address to the Federal Assembly on Thursday.
The head of state said it was necessary to continue modernisation of healthcare, to strengthen the material base of medical institutions and increase wages for medical personnel.
He called for further developing secondary school that “needs a new system of search for and support of young talents. It is necessary to form a new generation of teachers and pay them decent wages”.
