TROITSK /the Moscow region/, April 9 (Itar-Tass) — The plan to organise the Skolkovo innovations centre will be expedited in order to host the G-8 summit in 2014, Moscow’s Mayor Sergei Sobyanin said during a meeting with Russia’s president on expanding of Moscow.
“It is necessary to speed up development of infrastructures in Skolkovo, and hosting the G-8 summit would require adjustment of plans,” Sobyanin said on Monday.
Russia will chair the G-8 in 2014. A week earlier, during a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Vladislav Surkov, Russia’s President Dmitry Medvedev announced the summit would be organised at Skolkovo.
“Over three years, we plan to organise for Skolkovo effective transport infrastructures, and we have monthly schedules,” Sobyanin said. “Skolkovo will have convenient access to Moscow, including by a new speed road which will cross Moscow’s western and northern districts.”
The mayor added the new road had been constructed already.
