MOSCOW, September 27 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said that despite the economic crisis Russia would continue to build an “intelligent” state where man is the main value.
“The time of simple decisions is gone. Economic challenges we are facing today must not be underestimated. There is a hard way to go. The crisis notwithstanding, we must continue to move towards a post-industrial economy and ‘intelligent’ state where man is the main value,” Medvedev said in his article “The Time of Simple Decisions Is Gone” published by the financial daily Vedomosti on Friday, September 27.
He believes it necessary to go along the road of sustainable development, while preserving previous achievements in reducing poverty and supporting disadvantaged sections of the population and depressed territories.
Medvedev stressed that such state could not be built by the authorities alone. “A socially responsible person is their full-fledged partner in this challenging work, and the understanding of this responsibility does not depend on one’s social status: a worker, a first-year student, an academician, an entrepreneur or a government official, they all should have it,” he said.
“The world does not stand still, and global competition will become fiercer than ever. For Russia this may become a historic chance to change its role in the international division of labour. We have certain advantages over other countries in terms of low debt indicators and large reserves,” the prime minister said.
