On July, 16 the convention forum “Strategy of the Future” took place in Torez. The Chairman of the People’s Council of the DPR Denis Pushilin, the Acting Minister of Economic Development of the DPR Victoria Romanyuk, the Acting Minister of Justice of the DPR Elena Radomskaya, the union of small and medium business employees, the city administration participated in a ceremonial opening.
Speaking at the plenary session of the convention “Strategy of the Future”, Chairman of the People’s Council of the DPR Denis Pushilin spoke about the main directions of development of the DPR’s economic sphere.
“We need to improve an economic component of our Republic. A lot of things depend on whether our enterprises will function or not. If the enterprises work, therefore, there will be workplaces; if there are workplaces, taxes will be paid, and that will give the chance to the Republic to fully exist – to pay social benefits, salaries, pensions and many other things.
We need to develop. We are the owners of productive land, we have a huge industrial potential, it’s all in our hands”, Denis Pushilin claimed.
Opening the convention forum, Denis Pushilin appealed participants of action for active work, having noted that the main objective of action is to read all the available offers and to work the ways of their realization.
“I am very pleased that the city of Torez receives this forum. It’s been two months since the first convention forum “Strategy of the Future”, which has launched similar forums throughout the Republic. It is important that today you have voiced your ideas and proposals on the restoration of the enterprises, providing citizens with jobs, protection of the rights of employees, etc.”, Denis Pushilin said.
According to the Acting Minister of Economic Development of the DPR Victoria Romanyuk, following the results of the current half-year, the number of the enterprises increased by 12,5% in the Republic.
“If you go back to 2014, when the economic blockade started, we remember how the food prices were inflated and how much agiotage there was around them. 2 years have passed, everything is different – there are products, the pricing policy has changed. Of course, there are some problems, but we try to listen to everyone. I want to say that by the end of this half-year the number of enterprises in the Republic increased by 12.5% compared to the previous half year.
Convent “Strategy of the Future” is the platform where your suggestions and ideas will be heard. There is very positive feedback of the republican citizens on the fair which is supported by our Ministry. At the fair you can make sure of the quality of manufactured goods yourself. Our enterprises are gradually recovering, although due to the economic blockade, the process is more complicated and longer”, Viktoria Romaniuk noted.
Addressing participants of the forum, the Acting Minister of Justice of the DPR Elena Radomskaya declared that at this stage one of the directions of public policy is stabilization of a social and economic situation in the DPR.
“Now there is a very important event in the life of our Republic. On May 11, 2014, we have made a conscious choice, and this choice was correct, not vain. Public policy, which is carried out by Head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko, is aimed at stabilizing the socio-economic situation in the DPR. I am sure that together we will succeed”, Elena Radomskaya noted.
