Thank you for this! ”- Tatarstan President addressed the meeting participants.
He briefly summed up the outgoing year. Rustam Minnikhanov said that all 40 programs have been successfully implemented in the republic.

These large projects will change the quality of life in our country. Some believe that it is impossible to achieve the inherent parameters. But, in my opinion, there are no impossible tasks. As for our republic, we are fulfilling all the parameters so far and will continue this work, ”he said.
