MOSCOW, February 11. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich said it is premature to move head offices of companies from Moscow to the Far East.
"This idea has not come from the top, it is still at the level of discussion, including in companies, because in the long run, it's up to a company to make this move," Dvorkovich told a news conference on Tuesday, adding that "it's premature to talk about any companies."
The proposal to move a number of federal executive bodies and offices of large state-owned companies from the Russian capital to the Far East was first voiced by Deputy Prime Minister Yuri Trutnev.
"I believe it would be useful as in the case with St Petersburg, for example. It can turn regional centers into cities of federal significance which is very important for the development of Russian provinces," Dvorkovich said.
