Working meeting with Acting Head of Udmurtia Alexander Solovyev

August 6, 2014, Novo-Ogaryovo, Moscow Region

Mr Solovyev briefed Vladimir Putin on the socioeconomic situation in the republic.

The situation in the automotive industry and agriculture was one of the subjects of discussion. In particular, the Izhevsk Automobile Plant invested three billion rubles [more than $83 million] in its own funds last year and produced 50,000 vehicles. This year, the company plans to invest 6 billion rubles and produce 80,000 vehicles. The plant has launched a new car – the LADA Granta liftback, and in August will start producing Nissan cars.

The republic is expecting a good harvest this year. Last year, approximately 30 billion rubles worth of agricultural products was produced and sold, but this year, Udmurtia expects a figure of 36 billion.

Mr Solovyev also spoke about the Housing for Young Families programme that the region is currently implementing, and the construction of kindergartens.
