Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his envoy in the Volga Federal District Alexander Konovalov
Russian President Vladimir Putin met with his envoy in the Volga Federal District Alexander Konovalov, who briefed the head of state on the socio-economic situation there. "The dynamics of industrial growth were not bad by the results of the first half of this year. The share of processing industry was slightly lower than Russia's average, but the indicators, on the whole, are encouraging," Konovalov said. He noted a good growth of indicators in the construction industry. A total of four million square meters of housing were built in the first half of this year, or one-fifth of the all-Russia indicator, with some regions - such as Tatarstan and Bashkortostan - ranking fifth or seventh among all Russian provinces by this indicator," the presidential representative emphasized. "Hopefully, these figures are indicative of the changes which happened last year during the implementation of the national project in the sphere of housing, which will provide for reversing the negative dynamics of prices per square meter of housing on the primary and secondary markets," Konovalov added. "Harvesting is underway; as of last Monday, 10 percent of areas under crops were thrashed, 2.6 million tonnes of grain have been brought in, up 600,000 tonnes from last year. Despite adverse weather, the result will not be bad," he said noting positive dynamics in the production of milk, eggs and meat. In the first half of this year, the Volga Federal District accounted for one-third of Russia's dairy products output, while local eggs and meat production each made up one-fourth of the country's output, according to the envoy. "The population's real incomes have been growing in provinces of the Volga Federal District. The average monthly wage shows a positive growth trend, but the problem of the gap between regions in real incomes and the average wage, as well as within one region, remains," Konovalov said.
