MOSCOW, December 1. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin’s annual State-of-the-Nation address to the Federal Assembly (Russia’s parliament) has set development tasks for ten years ahead, State Duma (lower house of parliament) Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said.
"This address is set to cover at least a ten-year planning horizon, until 2027 and ever further," he told reporters.
Volodin pointed out that the new tax legislation alone was planned to be discussed in 2017-2018.
"A sound approach to each task should be adopted considering all the aspects. It will be necessary to maintain dialogue with civil society as well as businessmen and expert community. Final decisions will be made following a thorough analysis and preparatory work," the State Duma speaker stressed.
Parliament member Nikolai Kovalyov from the United Russia party said that the address has set a trend for normalizing Russia’s international relations.
"We need friends. I think countries will increase attention on international cooperation in the near term. It means, there is a new hope for normalizing our relations with the West," Kovalyov stated.
He added that "many have picked up this signal and this trend." "I view it as an explicit directive concerning my work in the OSCE PA. I believe, those who will work at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) have perceived this signal as well," the MP concluded.
