MOSCOW, November 13. / TASS /. Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to the Russian government, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and the VEB.RF corporation to launch a comprehensive mechanism for the implementation of socially significant projects of citizens. The head of state addressed this initiative at the plenary session of the forum "Strong Ideas for the New Time".
"I ask the government, Vnesheconombank of Russia, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives to develop and launch a comprehensive mechanism for the implementation of socially significant projects of the country's citizens," Putin said addressing the forum participants. He noted that the forum participants proposed many socially significant initiatives. It is important, according to the president, to turn interesting ideas into viable projects, teams and action plans, to remove administrative and legislative barriers, and to identify understandable sources of funding. The President recalled that the ASI expert council and the head of VEB.RF Igor Shuvalov have solid experience in this matter.
Putin stressed that the world is changing at a tremendous speed. "Literally before our eyes, colossal changes are taking place in technologies, in public life, a new time is really beginning. For dynamic, sustainable development, we need not only strong ideas, but also effective, efficient mechanisms. We need to be able to translate them into reality", - said the Russian leader.
Putin suggested that, at each ASI supervisory board, regularly watch how this model works, how many ideas received support and found their practical embodiment, what systemic effective tools should be used to support schoolchildren and students when starting their own business. "The projects of young entrepreneurs and our technical young talents should, as they say, fly, become successful start-ups, and even better competitive companies both in Russia and in the world," the head of state added.
Putin noted that he would like to hear specific proposals from the Center for Youth Initiatives, which was created under the ASI. "We need every idea, every idea is important. The idea of young people is extremely important and it is very good that they are already setting the vector, increasing the speed of change, creating new so-called meanings, media and business models, and unique technical solutions," he noted it. The President invited the youth to become more actively involved in the common work on the development of the country.
"At all times and historical epochs, the strength of Russia has been precisely in the talent of our people, in our deeds and values, the values of mutual assistance, respect for our history, patriotism. These moral principles today manifest themselves in heartfelt, genuine cultural educational initiatives, social service of volunteers and non-profit sector, in the work of the search movement, which preserves our memory of the Great Patriotic War, "- Putin reminded, stressing that it is thanks to this that Russians feel like a single people. In his opinion, this year, going through serious tests of the pandemic, ordinary citizens, young people, doctors, entrepreneurs "are doing piercing, delighting in their generosity and cordiality."
