NOVO-OGAREVO, April 19, /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian government has all necessary reserves to observe the social obligations, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said.
“We have resources to fulfil all the social obligations, though the obligations are tense, but they all will be fulfilled fully both in salaries and in support for social sectors,” he said.
“Everything planned, will be done,” the prime minister said.
“Despite the complicated situation and the situation in the industry, we shall try to stimulate further growth of industries, their modernization, and we shall also pay attention to investments in agriculture,” Medvedev added.
Problems in economy
Problems in development of the Russian economy, like the global development problems, will remain, and the Russian government will be doing everything to overcome them, Medvedev said.
“Clearly, clearly, all the problems in the global economy, and our domestic problems, including the structural ones, unfortunately, remain this year, too,” Medvedev said.
“The government will be doing everything to observe the targets, the programmes we have: beginning from the programme presidential orders, basic directions for the government’s work and to the state programmes,” the prime minister said.
“Last year, despite the rather complicated international situation, our economy still managed to demonstrate a growth, which is good,” Medvedev said. “The growth was different from the forecast, but still it was a movement forward.” “We have been drafting suggestions to be discussed with the president,” he added.
