For that period, the industrial production index amounted to 104.3%. This is above the Russian average by 2.4% and the average in the Volga Federal District by 3.3%.
Ivan Belozertsev noted that it was the increase in the whole, but there are still certain areas, which should be developed.

“Every year we meet with chief executive officers and discuss all ins and outs. These efforts are producing positive results, so plan further work in this way,” the governor ordered.Ivan Belozertsev announced his intention to personally attend these events.
