Mr Putin noted that it had been decided earlier that once the Sochi project was complete, more attention would go to developing the Kavkazskiye Mineralnye Vody resort area. The matter has already been discussed with the Government and the necessary plans drafted. The President said that these development plans must now be implemented.
Mr Vladimirov said that the project for developing the resort area focuses on provision of hi-tech medical services. Work to draft a concept for the resort’s development has been completed. Construction of a large balneotherapeutic health resort complex, offering hi-tech medical treatment services, will begin in 2016.
Mr Vladimirov also said that work to resettle people out of dilapidated housing in the region will be completed over the 2014–2016 period.
