MOSCOW, October 16 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is expected to chair a meeting on the issues of industrial security with members of the Expert Council.
The meeting will be held in the format of the ‘open government’. Spokespeople for the Organizing Committee of the open government told Itar-Tass the participants are going to look at the ways of optimizing the federal government’s supervisory powers and a roadmap for implementation of novel approaches to the methods of ensuring industrial security.
Also, the experts will consider the ways of improving the regulatory acts in the field of industrial security and safety, which will open up new opportunities of oil refineries, gas processing plants, and the petrochemical factories.
One more issue for intensive discussions will be the supervisory problems faced by the industrial facilities, which invest actively in the development of their production processes.
Separate attention will be paid to the problem of supervision in the field of medium-sized business.
Last but not least, the participants will examine a federal law on security at dangerous industrial facilities and the implementation of separate investment projects.
A number of big business executives are expected to take part, including the CEO and Director General of Gazprom Neft company, Alexander Dyukov, the President of the Business Russia Association, Alexander Galushka, the Director of Gazprom Energoholding Ltd., Denis Fyodorov, and a number of others.
