MOSCOW, August 13. /ITAR-TASS/. The Ministry of Economic Development in conjunction with the expert council to the Russian government is to prepare proposals before September 15 to enlarge quotas for the purchases of Russian innovative products by state bodies and state-run companies.
An Open Government press service official said such an assignment had been given by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to the expert council and to Mikhail Abyzov, Minister for Open Government Affairs.
It is supposed that Russia's innovative products should account for not less than five percent of the entire order. Principles are also to be worked out for the purchase of end innovation-based services in implementing large-scale investment and infrastructure state projects.
"In the process, representatives of innovation development institutions must participate in the purchasing commissions of state-run companies," the press service official pointed out.
