VOLGOGRAD, May 31. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has urged giving orders to Russian enterprises even if they are "slightly behind" their Western competitors.

"If an enterprise is more or less in line with a certain technological level it is better to give an order to them even if it implies some costs," he said at a meeting with representatives of business community.

Medvedev stressed that import substitution will appear only "if we give orders to our companies."

Medvedev said he often heard complaints from representatives of the business about poor quality of work of local contractors in comparison with foreign ones.

"And you will never learn how to do, if you do not give (orders). It is a vicious circle," he said.

According to him, if the Russian business always focuses on foreign companies it will always remain addicted to it.

"If we do not load their own (companies), we will never develop these competencies," he said.

The prime minister added that he was not against the idea of ··stricter examination of foreign projects in terms of their compliance with Russian standards.
