Putin: Implementation of six-year socio-economic plan requires that we adhere to principles of macroeconomic stability

MOSCOW. Feb 12 (Interfax) - Russian President Vladimir Putin called on members of the government to adhere to the previous principles of macroeconomic stability when implementing the socio-economic action plan for the next six years.

"We are now entering the final stage of work on a plan for socio-economic action for the next six years. It will include key areas such as supporting investment, ensuring technological sovereignty, updating and building infrastructure, the comprehensive development of populated areas and much more," Putin said on Monday at a meeting on economic issues.

"When implementing all these plans, it is important to maintain the stability of public finances and adhere to the same principles of ensuring macroeconomic stability as in past years, which allowed us to pass today's tests so well. I ask my colleagues to proceed from these basic considerations," he said.

Putin added that increasing incomes and the quality of life for citizens should remain absolute priorities.
