BARNAUL, February 21 (Itar-Tass) — Prime Minister Vladimir Putin, in the course of his trip to the Altai Territory, met with local business persons on Tuesday to discuss their problems.
"When I travel to the regions, I try and meet with the directors of the largest companies in order to look together at how the economy of a given region is faring; how it feels about the decisions made at the government level," Putin said as he opened the meeting.
He said he would discuss law implementation, and talk about problems that interfere with business.
"I'm hoping for a sincere talk in order to be able to feel what is happening here, and properly respond after my return to Moscow," the premier said as he invited the participants to join the discussion.
Taking part in the meeting are the directors of the leading companies in the Altai territory.
The meeting is held behind closed doors.
