Vladimir Putin: Good afternoon, colleagues.

today We will talk on topical issues of the socio-economic agenda, we will discuss additional proposals to stimulate business activity and improve the investment climate and the promotion of major infrastructure projects in the field of road construction, transport, communications, communications. And of course, consider the progress in the critical areas of socio-demographic policy.

Before we start the discussion, I note that for the first five months of the current year the macroeconomic situation in the country is generally stable. Key parameters are positive trends.

the industrial production growth for January–may amounted to 3.2 percent. Agriculture has advanced 2.5 percent. Increased freight turnover by 3.1 percent. At low levels, are unemployment and inflation, recorded growth in real wages and incomes.

of course, we always have in such cases to mention that not all people feel it, we need to know about it. But statistics is such that she is, I hope, will be preserved so that as many of our citizens felt the positive impact from the operation of the economy.

it is obvious that there are systemic problems, difficulties associated with the structural features of our economy, with the influence of external factors, and the current positive trend should not, of course, to reassure us.

Have to solve serious problems in terms of increasing the incomes, improving the efficiency and targeting of social support do much to productivity growth, development of small and medium entrepreneurship, for the emergence in Russia of new high-tech industries.

In General, you need to give an additional impetus to the development of the national economy, ask the long-term trend for increasing sustainability and increasing the quality of life of people. These tasks are reflected in the Decree on the national goals and strategic objectives of development of Russia until 2024. Let me remind you that until October 1 of the current year the provisions of the Ordinance must be deployed in specific national projects and programmes. Thus, once again, it is extremely important to establish cooperation with the regions, to provide organizational, financial linkages of Federal and regional programs.

Let's now discuss all these issues, let's talk about how we need to move on to solve all the above problems.
