The message reads, in part:
“The road industry is a key and essential sector of the national economy. Construction and modernisation of motorways and increasing their safety and traffic capacity have an immense effect on the development of the country’s economy and boosting regions’ industrial and technological potential as well as living standards.
I should note that the national road sector is expanding. Under comprehensive state programmes, efforts are underway to upgrade federal, regional and local motorways and roads, with widespread introduction of advanced technologies that extend road service period and endurance. Extensive work is underway to create a comfortable and stable transport infrastructure, which is becoming more accessible for persons with limited mobility.
I am confident that through cherishing labour traditions of your predecessors and putting effort into using advanced logistic and management schemes, you will further successfully solve responsible tasks to the benefit of Russia and its citizens.”
