The message reads, in part:
“I believe that your forum is a much-needed initiative and a practical step towards consolidating the efforts of the state, business and civil society institutions to address essential current tasks in the social sphere. You have a common goal of key priority for our country and society: to improve the quality of people’s lives.
I would like to emphasise that together we must do all we can to adjust the social infrastructure to current challenges and the needs and requirements of every individual and all Russian families. We must make broader use of advanced technologies and modern solutions, resources of the non-profit sector and socially-oriented businesses, to actively promote the best regional experience and practices. It is vital for positive changes to take place throughout the country.”
