The message reads, in part:
“Motor and municipal passenger transport is a significant component of the country’s transportation system. It plays an important role in strengthening interregional and international ties, in the effective development of industrial production, agriculture, and business, as well as directly affecting the quality of life of millions of Russians. Therefore, the state places special emphasis on upgrading this industry and improving its infrastructure. The Safe and High-Quality Roads national project includes the ongoing upgrade of our transport fleet, adding cutting-edge, environmentally friendly and easy-to-operate vehicles. Large-svale programmes are being successfully implemented to ensure the widespread introduction of digital technology, advanced logistics and management solutions, and to expand the scope of the services provided.
It is gratifying that specialists with the highest qualifications have always worked and continue to work in the Russian motor transport sector. They are strong and dedicated professionals. I am confident that you will continue to respect your predecessors’ traditions and to live up to your professional responsibilities.”
