MOSCOW, June 24 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin, when meeting with Alexei Ulyukayev, appointed as new Economic Development Minister, said that the minister was expected to establish working relations with colleagues in the government, with the Kremlin administration and the Federal Assembly for efficient cooperation.
The president wished the newly-appointed minister successful work and expressed confidence that his experience of work at the post of first deputy finance minister would be useful.
Work of an economic development minister is one of the key areas of activities of any government, Putin noted. Efficiency of the work largely depends on what working relations are established with parliament members, the administration, the Central Bank and colleagues in the government, including colleagues in the Finance Ministry, Putin believes.
There has been much discussion over the organization of the economic group, he noted. But however it is organized on a paper, these are people united by common aims and common tasks and thinking and speaking a common language, he added.
The president noted that after the work in the Finance Ministry, Ulyukayev also worked in the Central Bank. “I think that your skills and your experience of the work in the Central Bank, the main regulator of financial activities, a controlling body, will certainly be very much needed at the new post. I mean that the discussion continues about what is the first in point of the economy development interests and economic growth ensuring,” the president said. He wished Ulyukayev successes in the work.
