Already today, favourable economic conditions in modern Russia permit large scale investments into improving Russian citizens' quality of life

November 29, 2005

At the session of the Presidential Council for Implementing Priority National Projects, Vladimir Putin emphasized that in 2006 the federal budget's general expenditures on education and agriculture, public health services and housing will increase by more than a third, sixty percent, and fourfold respectively.

The key issues are: the rational use of allocated funds, organization and control. At the regional level, a comprehensive system of control including planning and organizing should be implemented with each project.

The President requires that special attention be paid to administrative procedures, the inefficiency of which has repeatedly prevented the initial phase from attaining results.

It is first and foremost the federal Government's responsibility to effectively use the funds and to oversee the present implementation of the decisions.
