MOSCOW, October 23 (Itar-Tass) - President Vladimir Putin will address a training seminar workshop for the mayors of Russian cities on Wednesday. The workshop will deal with home policy and modern principles of efficient management. The Kremlin press service reported that the workshop would be held under the auspices of the Presidential Administration.
"For three days the participants in the seminar will hear the lectures that Russian and foreign specialists will give over modern management, strategy of management and the most advanced tendencies in the shaping of the urban environment," the press service report said.
The President attended a similar seminar in summer. The governors of Russia's regions, not city mayors, were invited to the seminar held at one of the capital's holiday hotels. Addressing them, Putin asked the governors to render assistance to representatives of the All-Russia'Popular Front (ONF). "I expect that the ONF will be yet another additional instrument, yet another way of communication between various bodies and levels of power and the general public, between civil society and government organizations. This is why I request you to give assistance to ONF representatives in their work," he said.
Putin urged governors to raise the effectiveness of state governance. He said, their decisions "directly influence the development of entrepreneurship, the creation of highly productive jobs, the construction of housing and kindergartens and, in the final analysis, the creation of conditions for a rise in the wellbeing of families and the birth of babies".
He added that all governors are "experienced managers and know well how to implement this or that assignment properly", and called on them "really ti address problems, not just report carrying out assignments on paper. "I shall evaluate the results of the work of all levels of power on the strength of real changes in the life of people, not on the basis of formal reports," Putin warned then.
