MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) —— A new technological level may serve as Russia’s development engine, Prime Minister Vladimir Putin told Russia Forum-2012 on Thursday.
“This is true not only of technologies and innovations,” he said. “It implies a new culture in business, work, consumption, investments, education and life.”
A technological breakthrough would put many fundamental questions in front of many countries. For instance, Putin recalled a potential “energy revolution,” which might bring about a slump in prices of crude oil and other hydrocarbons.
“The forthcoming decades would be a period of major challenges, risks and transformations. As a result, there will inevitably emerge new economic centers of the world. I would like to see a chance for us to become one of such leaders,” he said.
