The message reads, in part:
“This event had crucial importance for Altai and its people: it contributed to the region's economic and social development, the preservation of its unique traditions and a rich historical, cultural and spiritual heritage.
Today, the republic is facing important and relevant modern challenges. It is necessary not only to modernise the traditional employment sectors such as agriculture and tourism, but also to develop and implement ambitious projects in manufacturing, convenient and safe transportation infrastructure, provide support for private business and entrepreneurial activity. This will help to attract significant investment into the region, create new jobs, and thus increase the standard and quality of life.”
