Greetings to the Forum Participants
Official welcomming address to the Forum participants and guests of Boris Gryzlov,
Chairman of State Duma of the Russian Federation
19-20 of October, 2009, Saint-Petersburg
Dear forum members!
I’d like to welcome you on the threshold of the forum dedicated to such an important factor for a balanced development of our country like strategic planning. VIII All-Russian forum is intended to activate the use of this factor as a guarantee of continuing growth for our country.
The State Duma of the Federal Assembly is one of the sponsors of the forum Strategic Planning in Regions and Cities of Russia, which holds a productive multilateral dialogue and ensures the coordination of branches and territorial priorities of the state regional policy. Previous VII Forum 2008 had constructive discussions on the long-term prospects for development of Russia and its regions up to 2020, and as a result some valuable recommendations have been taken.
World Financial Crisis has made adjustments to the current plans, but in the regions and cities of Russia the work on strategic planning continues. It is important, that the VIII Forum will sum the results of anti-crisis strategies competition among the subjects of the Federation, aimed at identifying and distribution of new effective solutions to the socio-economic goals of regional development in the modern world.
I wish to VIII All-Russia Forum Strategic Planning in Regions and Cities of Russia success!
