MOSCOW, December 12. /ITAR-TASS/. State Duma deputies believe the suggestions President Putin voiced in the state-of-the-nation address on changing the patent system for labor migrants will soon be codified in bills, Mikhail Starshinov of United Russia and a member of the All-Russia Popular Front’s central headquarters told reporters on Thursday.
“We are pleased the head of the country shares and supports the ideas, we have been discussing at the Front,” he said. The president’s suggestions on changing the patent system for migrants “is not a decorative, but rather a fundamental measure, which will realistically improve the situation and will to a big extent satisfy the public demand for bringing that sphere to the order.”
“I believe, quite soon the initiative will be formed in a bill, and I hope it will be supported by the State Duma’s all factions,” he said in conclusion.
The president said the current work patent system should be changed. “Now, a foreign employee should buy a patent, if employed with an individual,” Putin said. “I believe, companies and private businesses also should be able to hire a foreign employee having a patent.”
“The patent’s price should be set by every region, depending on the regional labour market situation and the average incomes,” the president said. “The patent system should be differential and it should stimulate coming to the Russian Federation first of all professionally trained specialists, who speak Russia and who are close to our culture.”
“A patent should be valid in the region, where it was issued,” Putin said. “If we organise this work correctly, patents will become economic instruments regulating the migration flows.
