MOSCOW, October 26 (Itar-Tass) - Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said the government would continue implementing key infrastructural projects and programmes of the Far East development despite the complicated economic situation.
In an interview with the Vesti V Subbotu news programme with Sergei Brilyov, Medvedev said, “The projects are not being cancelled despite the budget optimisation.”
“Moreover, if the events develop better that we hope for and if additional funding is provided, we’ll resume a series of infrastructural projects and re-finance programmes, which have been cancelled,” the premier said.
It is necessary to make investments in the Far East development. “The formula is simple: to invest money cleverly and invest money in the fields, which ensure further growth in the Far East,” he said, adding, “We’ll do this. Maybe, not so fast.”
