MOSCOW, July 21 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin congratulated Russian metallurgists on their professional holiday celebrated on Sunday, July 21.
“You take legitimate pride in the long history and glorious traditions of your industry that has always employed the best specialists devoted to their work and calling,” the president said in a message.
“Their hard work facilitated the development of the national metallurgical industry, economic growth in regions and the strengthening of the national defence capabilities,” the message said.
Putin noted that Russian metallurgists are facing a number of important tasks, such as “enhancing the industry’s scientific and technological potential and its competitiveness, attracting investments and providing proper social benefits to its workers.”
“I am convinced that by relying on profound knowledge and experience, you will successfully solve these key tasks and aspire for new production achievements for the benefit of our country,” the president said.
Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev also congratulated the industry’s workers on their holiday.
“Owing to your hard and selfless work, the metallurgical industry is one of the key sectors in the Russian economy. Its stable operation is largely critical to the defence capability of our country, industrial growth and better life of millions of people. The government is doing much to develop the industry, modernise metallurgical enterprises and attract investments. Special attention is paid to the introduction of energy efficient and environmentally friendly technologies, high labour productivity and the training of skilled engineers and workers,” the prime minister said.
