The work on developing effective mechanisms of feedback, involvement of citizens into processes of managerial decision-making and its implementation will be continued", Rustam Minnikhanov noted.
Growth of the role of mass media
Today, the major task of the mass media becomes the distribution of information traffics to the target audience, channels and ways of delivery. Responsibility of the media for the quality of disseminated data is increasing many-fold.

The President of Tatarstan noted the importance of establishing the direct cooperation with regions of foreign countries: "Today it is the shortest path to the advanced technologies and the consumer. At the same time, we need to raise the efficiency of the participation of the representatives of the authorities in the Russian and international events, to work on the proposed investment projects better. I also want to draw your attention to the need to support the projects of the municipalities with the involvements of Tatarstan Investment Development Agency".
In mentioning the development of petrochemical complex of Tatarstan, Rustam Minnikhanov instructed to develop and adopt a new Program on development: "We need to move from setting goals and objectives for the next 5 years to a long-term planning. We need the industrial ideology of forming the qualitative leap in the development".

It is necessary to follow the example of such developing countries as Singapore, Japan, the UAE, and move towards strategic planning, as called for by the Head of the republic.
"The scope and depth of thought enshrined in the Address of the President of the Republic of Tatarstan can only encourage the heads of the Russian entities to develop significantly. And only together, as friendly regional teams, we can improve the quality of life of people in our country", the Head of Tatarstan Investment Development Agency Taliya Minullina commented.
