MAGADAN, January 12 /ITAR-TASS/. A newly-formed government of Russia’s Magadan region got down to work on January 9, 2014. The new body replaced the old regional administration that had existed before 2014. Governor Vladimir Pecheny has held the first meeting of the new regional government.
The region’s governing structure consists of eleven ministries, departments and inspectorates. Governor Pecheny said that the region’s administrative reform had made it possible to cut the number of territorial executive bodies from 30 to 23, including through the merger of several organizations. Twenty employees have been dismissed.
Pecheny believes that intensive economic development is the basis for resolving the territory’s social problems.
“Evidently, it is impossible to resolve social problems and raise people’s living standards in the Magadan region without a breakthrough in economic development,” the governor said, adding that increasing the region’s attractiveness for investors and the creation of favorable business conditions should remain priority tasks for the government.
The governor also stressed the importance of modernizing the housing and utilities sector and resolving its problems. He also called for improving the work of cultural and sport facilities as well as of healthcare institutions and educational establishments. Pecheny also said that the vocational training system should be re-targeted to meeting the needs of regional economy. Vladimir Pecheny is confident that the newly-formed government will be able to resolve all the assigned tasks.
“If the residents of the Magadan region are satisfied with their lives and the state of things in the region, it’s going to be a major assessment of the government’s work,” the governor said. He added that people’s opinion was the best answer to the question of how efficient and professional the executive bodies are.
