VLADIVOSTOK, March 16 (Itar-Tass) — Primorye needs a new comprehensive program for social and economic development that must take into consideration all resources – natural and human, the new regional governor, Vladimir Miklushevsky, told parliamentarians on Friday.

According to Miklushevsky, care of social wellbeing and economic prosperity of region’s residents must be the main priority in the work of the new administration. “We have quite a good starting position,” he said, stressing that this was because of billions of roubles of federal investments in the development of Primorye. However, all investments in the development of the region currently come from the federal and regional budgets, without investments from business corporations, he stressed.

At an extraordinary session on Friday, the legislative assembly of Russian Primorye approved the candidacy of Vladimir Miklushevsky for region’s governor.

A total of 34 of 38 deputies attending the session voted for him. The office of the Primorye governor had been vacant since February 28, when President Dmitry Medvedev sacked former governor Sergei Darkin and appointed Vladimir Miklushevsky, the rector of the Far Eastern Federal University, acting governor.
