MOSCOW, June 7 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin has criticized some ministries for the poorly-prepared five-year plans.
During the meeting with vice-premiers, the head of state said he believed the Health and Social Development Ministry, the Culture Ministry and the Federal Customs Service had failed to cope with the task.
There are too many unclear formulations in the documents. But just to wish a "light future" is not enough, Putin said.
In his view, a concrete picture clear for citizens is needed to show what changes will take place in a specific sector in a year, two or five years, what changes will have an effect on wellbeing and the quality of life of people, he noted.
Mechanisms of contacts with the public and wide public discussion of taken measures should be set down in each plan. Access should be opened for the society to the information about the course and factual results of the work of appropriate ministries and departments. There is no such yet, the president noted.
