MOSCOW, June 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev believes that the idea of ··the Open Government has been implemented and has become a fact of social life. He expressed this opinion at a meeting on the results of the first year of Open Government’s work.
“The very idea ... it has been put into practical after all,” stated the Russian cabinet head. He thanked the experts for their work over the past year. Medvedev noted that the principles of the Open Government work “have taken root and become part of the work of the main government.”
The prime minister believes that the debates in the Open Government format were hot and productive, 30 bills have been discussed at them. However, “the time will show” whether they (bills) have become better as a result, Medvedev noted.
He named among the most demonstrative documents that have passed through the ordeal of the Open Government the Law “On industrial safety,” as well as discussions on the establishment of a mega-regulator of the financial market.
