Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko met with the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President in the Volga Federal District Igor Komarov. It was held at the Government Coordination Center. The Vice Prime Minister demonstrated to the plenipotentiary the capabilities and tools of the center for the prompt resolution of regular and emergency situations and for achieving national goals and implementing national projects.
During the meeting, Dmitry Chernyshenko and Igor Komarov discussed approaches that will be used for the socio-economic development of the Volga Federal District. This is a key task set by Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin for the vice-premiers – curators of the federal districts.
“The systems of the Coordination Center provide enhanced capabilities for analytics, planning and risk forecasting for the Government to make informed decisions. We intend to use these instruments both for the purposes of the Volga Federal District and for other federal districts. We will focus on the use of primary data. The purpose of the supervision is to ensure prompt and coordinated actions of all authorities and organizations for the socio-economic development of the regions. As a curator of the Volga Federal District, my task is to organize the management of this work and coordination of the parties involved within the functional, which was determined by the Prime Minister, ”noted Dmitry Chernyshenko.
“From our side, we are ready to actively join this work, the constant exchange of data, on the basis of which decisions will be made. Timeliness and objectivity of incoming information are the most important factors for effective management of the region, including such as the Volga Federal District. Currently, at the expense of the resources of the District Center for Regional Management, we are monitoring economic and social trends in the subjects of the Volga Federal District, including paying close attention to the vaccination of the population. The use of new digital systems will allow a deeper understanding of these processes, ”said Igor Komarov.
In particular, it is planned to create a new instrument on the basis of the Coordination Center – a regional monitoring system. It will include key performance indicators, a list of priority regional projects and the status of their implementation, as well as key issues to be addressed.
“We need to organize our work so that all the necessary information on the socio-economic development of the regions is at our fingertips. And the new tool will allow you to do it as efficiently as possible. Thanks to him, in real time, we will be able to monitor the performance of tasks, see the dynamics and, in case of deviations, based on objective data, make the most balanced decisions to solve problems, ”added Dmitry Chernyshenko.
Dmitry Chernyshenko and Igor Komarov also discussed the agenda of the planned meeting with the heads of the Volga Federal District, which is planned in Samara on September 9. Strategic planning in the regions of the Okrug will be considered.
