Greetings » Welcome Address of the Governor of St. Petersburg Georgy Poltavchenko
I’m glad to welcome participants and guests of the XVI All-Russia Forum "Strategic Planning in the Regions and Cities of Russia"!
Over many years, representatives of public and local authorities, business and academic communities have brought together in St. Petersburg to share the best practice and discuss important challenges of regional development strategies.
The elaboration of clear benchmarks for a long-term perspective is a must for effective management decisions at all government levels. Our city has always been a leader in this field.
The Strategic Plan for Development of St. Petersburg is the first such document in the history of modern Russia, adopted twenty years ago. Today we are successfully implementing the Strategy 2030, aimed for innovative mastering of the Northern Capital and a stable improvement of citizens’ quality of life.
We are ready to share our experience and always interested to study the best practice from other regions of Russia.
I wish all Forum participants and guests fruitful work, interesting discussions and the most pleasant impressions of visiting St. Petersburg!
