“We will have to resolve several tasks at once” in working on socio-economic legislative acts,” the lower house’s speaker said. “First, we should secure complete fulfilment of state social commitments. Secondly, to preserve macroeconomic stability. Thirdly, stir up economic growth and import substitution among the top priorities for further development,” the lower house speaker noted.
The lower house speaker also noted that it was important to make budget expenditures more efficient. “This means that the system of parliamentary control over budget process should be developed. We will continue compulsorily this work during autumn session,” he pledged.
