SIMFEROPOL, July 25. /TASS/. The government is analyzing the Stolypin Club’s proposals on economic reforms but they cannot be considered as an alternative to the strategy that is being elaborated by Alexei Kudrin’s team or to other program documents, Russian Minister of Economic Development Alexei Ulyukayev said on Monday.
"About six months ago, [Prime Minister] Dmitry Medvedev issued an instruction to consider proposals of the Stolypin Club experts. We are considering them. Naturally, we don’t consider them as a kind of alternative to anything. We work with various expert group, and this is just one of them. Why not consider their proposals?," Ulyukayev told journalists when asked whether the government considers the Stolypin Club’s medium-term economic growth strategy and whether it can be seen as an alternative to the program of reforms that is being elaborated under the leadership of Russia’s former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin.
Earlier, Russian business daily Vedomosti reported that President Vladimir Putin agreed with the initiative of his aide Andrei Belousov to issue an instruction to the government to work out a medium-term program of the growth strategy on the basis of the Stolypin Club report. According to the newspaper, the Stolypin Club’s initiatives will be considered by a government’s inter-ministerial group to prepare the program for the consideration of the presidium of the presidential economic council by the fourth quarter of the year.
