Execution of "May" Decrees of the President

The Presidential Decrees of 7 May 2012 outlines broad areas of the development of Russia in the coming years.

Vladimir Putin chaired a meeting on the implementation of presidential executive orders signed on the inauguration day of May 7, 2012.

These documents outline the main national development priorities for the coming years, particularly the long-term state economic and social policy, measures for the implementation of foreign and demographic policy.

The overall objective of this work is to create new and higher standard of living for the citizens of the Russian Federation, primarily by substantially improving the efficiency of public administration and the state’s performance.

Particular attention was paid to the development of education and healthcare, and the housing and utilities issues, which are the sectors that cause the greatest concern for our citizens.

In order to carry out scientific and technological, socio-economic development of Russian Federation, population growth and improving living standards, building of comfortable conditions for living and opportunities for self-realization for everyone, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a Decree №204 “About national goals and strategic issues of development of Russian Federation for the period up to 2024”.

We need breakthroughs in all areas of life. I strongly believe that only a free society that is open to all new and cutting-edge advances, while rejecting injustice, ignorance, crass conservatism and bureaucratic red tape, is callable of achieving these breakthroughs. We must cast aside everything that constrains people, prevents them from fully unleashing their potential and their talents, becoming a barrier for the development of the entire nation.

Vladimir Putin

President of Russian Federation
