The message reads, in part:
“The goal of our country’s comprehensive modernisation is to give our people a modern quality of life and ensure Russia a place among the global leaders. Consistent implementation of this strategic policy depends directly on the participation of all political forces, the business, academic and expert communities, and of course, our young people.
Today, you are creating an effective platform for consolidating public effort. It is very significant that this initiative has come from United Russia, which has a key part to play in setting our country’s economy on an innovative development track.
I am sure that United Russia’s considerable influence will help in getting as many as possible active and creative-thinking people involved in carrying out the modernisation tasks before us.”
