On the decisions following the meeting on the organization of work in connection with the introduction of the institution of supervision of federal districts by the Deputy Prime Ministers of the Government of the Russian Federation

Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin identified the key goals of the socio-economic development of the regions, which should be guided in their work by the deputy prime ministers appointed responsible for the development of the federal districts. The curators will have to pay special attention to the growth of incomes of the population and the number of employees in the entrusted territories, as well as to take care of increasing the volume of investments and the production of goods and services in basic types of economic activity.

The main tasks of the work of deputy prime ministers within the framework of the new institute of supervision were approved following the results of the meeting, which was chaired by Mikhail Mishustin. The Prime Minister also gave a number of instructions to organize the activities of his deputies as responsible for the development of federal districts. Most of the tasks must be completed by November 1.

So, in each of the regions that are part of a particular federal district, the deputy prime ministers, together with the heads of the subjects, will have to identify up to five projects aimed at the socio-economic development of the territories, and highlight up to five issues, the solution of which will have the greatest effect to achieve key goals facing curators.

The Ministry of Economic Development, in turn, should update the methods for preparing regional strategic planning documents and ensure their linkage with federal regulations aimed at achieving national development goals.

Another instruction from Mikhail Mishustin concerns the creation of a project office in the structure of the Coordination Center of the Government to monitor the socio-economic development of the regions. This work should be completed by October 1.

The President gave the instruction to assign to the deputy prime ministers the supervision of the federal districts during the direct line. In July, Mikhail Mishustin officially divided the new responsibilities between his deputies.

Victoria Abramchenko was appointed responsible for the Siberian Federal District, Yuri Borisov – for the Ural Federal District, Tatyana Golikova – for the Northwestern Federal District. Dmitry Grigorenko oversees the Central Federal District, Alexander Novak – the North Caucasian Federal District, Yuri Trutnev – the Far Eastern Federal District and the Arctic, Marat Khusnullin – the Southern Federal District. Dmitry Chernyshenko is in charge of the Volga Federal District.

Decisions on the appointment of those in charge were made taking into account professional experience, knowledge and the range of tasks performed by deputy prime ministers in the Government.

“Each curator in the assigned territory will be responsible for its social development, for how efficiently budget funds are spent and whether these spending meet the needs of people,” Mikhail Mishustin emphasized, announcing this decision.
