In addition, the anti-crisis measures have helped as much as possible to support the process of import substitution, amid low oil prices and the extension of the anti-Russian sanctions, and to achieve some positive results.
"For the implementation of the plan we carried out an extensive organizational legislative work, adopted 170 governmental decisions, 15 federal laws. Not all of what we have discussed was possible to implement this year, some activities will move to the next year, and some activities have a permanent nature," the Prime Minister said.
Medvedev also expressed hope that members of the parliament will not delay the adoption of important laws.
