This week Vladimir Putin met with the elected Governors and heads of regions – voted in after the recent election day. The president noted that the elected Governors have enough life and professional experience to be effective in their work. But, most importantly – they have to be kind to the people and repay their trust. Wise words, which every Governor must frame and put above their work desks
Vladimir Putin, Russia’s President: “You have to work hard. And, most importantly, feel the pulse of life constantly. You have to feel what the people are expecting of you and how they react to what you do – in order to fulfil their expectations”.
St. Petersburg’s Governor also took part in the meeting. He told the President about what has been done in the city over the last year. The main focus was put onto the fulfillment of national projects. Such as residential buildings, roads and healthcare.
Alexander Beglov, the Governor of St. Petersburg: “Today we are fulfilling 40 regional projects within the national projects. One of the main support – erasing the imbalance between residential construction and social projects. The President has allocated the funding. And we are using federal funds to buy out 15 kindergartens, three schools and 16 offices for general practitioners”.
The Governor of St. Petersburg also reminded about the project of creating an art-park at the bank of Malaya Nevka, which had been endorsed by Vladimir Putin. According to the city’s boss, such major public spaces within the city’s historic center have not been built for several decades. He also pointed that St. Petersburg retains the crown of Russia’s tourist capital. And that next year the record of tourist attendance will be broken – 12 million people a year.
