The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov wants to see the Republic economically well-developed and ready to overcome any obstacles. Rustem Khamitov has told to “Russia 24” in his interview on August 11 what are his first steps on this office new for him going to be and how the work of the new Government is to be built up. Along with the investment problems and certain isolation we still face the problem of the awakening of the initiatives of the people, living in Republic of Bashkortostan, the head of the Republic mentioned. “I am sure that only people, able to display certain initiatives and working in the legal sphere, can raise the economics of the Republic” – Rustem Khamitov underscored. Bashkortostan today stands in the list of rather strong and stable Russian regions but it is not enough because both the country and the Republic need steady progress. In opinion of M-r Khamitov only the people of modern formation can provide for this growth. “In this case I understand up-to-dateness as the freedom, the initiatives – all what creates real nutrient medium for enterprise and free creative labor. This is one of the key problems I’m facing now – to turn the society towards the initiative and creative labor” – the President of Bashkortostan said. One more idea the President RB suggests is that in his opinion the Government RB should be busy with the economic and social issues, aimed at the solution of everyday problems of the population. At the same time the Presidential Administration is mainly the political instrument, which has to be engaged in the international interrelations.
