Greetings on Energy Industry Worker's Day

December 22, 2019

Vladimir Putin sent a message of greetings to current and former workers of Russia's energy industry on Energy Industry Worker's Day.

The message reads, in part:

“The national electric power industry, which comprises over a thousand power stations, is by right considered one of the world’s biggest and cleanest. These impressive results were obtained thanks to the highest professionalism of many generations of its workers and their dedication to their work.

It is vitally important that the industry is steadily moving forward, fully meeting the growing demands of the national economy and the social sphere, and making a substantial contribution to strengthening the country’s energy security. The implementation of large-scale projects of the fuel and energy complex facilitates the comprehensive development of the Russian regions and the creation of new, modern jobs.

I am confident that while relying on extensive experience and wonderful traditions of former workers, you will continue working with due diligence and will successfully solve the set tasks. The most important of them include a qualitative upgrade of the electric power industry on an advanced technological base, increasing the investment appeal of the industry, introducing advanced, green innovations, and supplying reliable uninterrupted power to the consumers.”
