In the video conference format, the meeting was chaired by Deputy Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Chernyshenko and Plenipotentiary Envoy of the President of Russia to the Volga Federal District Igor Komarov.
Following the decisions of the previous district meeting, the first to present their projects were Bashkortostan, Tatarstan, Samara, and Nizhny Novgorod regions — the most significant regions of the Volga Federal District in terms of population. According to Igor Komarov, they make a substantial contribution to the economy of the district and the country as a whole. More than 14 million people live in these four territories and create 56 percent of the total added value of the Volga Federal District.
Following the meeting, Dmitry Chernyshenko instructed the Ministry of Economic Development of the country, the Coordination Center of the Government of Russia, and Rosstat, together with the regions, to ensure uninterrupted collection of data characterizing the current situation in the regions of the Volga Federal District within a week for further decision-making on the implementation of projects.
