Vice Governor Vladimir Knyaginin spoke on post-COVID plans of the city government on Saint-Petersburg TV Channel.
Speaking in the St. Petersburg against COVID-19 programme on Saint-Petersburg TV Channel, Vice Governor Vladimir Knyaginin told how the city will be lifting the restrictive measures currently in place. He said that, first of all, the city’s healthcare and sanitary control systems need to be reorganized to improve its sustainability in pandemic conditions.
The city government is also concerned about supply chains as the quick development of COVID-19 globally interrupted all medical and individual protection equipment supply chains.
‘We will start developing our own production facilities localizing medical equipment, drug and individual protection equipment manufacturing in St. Petersburg,’ Vladimir Knyaginin told.
However, investment into social objects should not suffer, Vladimir Knyaginin emphasized. The city ought to invest into infrastructure projects, road construction, heating network and water supply system maintenance.
Another priority is digitalization and promoting electronic public services via internet.
‘We will continue working to improve the sustainability of the city economy. Better labour and operations efficiency and streamlined economic processes allow the economy to react adequately to such situations,’ Vladimir Knyaginin said.
