Dear Colleagues,

Our priorities are clear and open! First, we call attention to the hopes and concerns of every resident in the Kaliningrad region. This includes family support, support for people who need it, the high-quality health care, quality modern education, and the places in kindergartens. Culture, respect for the historical legacy. Second, we want a comfortable environment for everyone. Third, our priority is, of course, the economy. Without an open, competitive and sustainable economy, we will not solve the problems facing us.

We must learn to appreciate each entrepreneur -- from someone who wants to open his own car repair shop or farm to someone who wants to invest in the region billions of rubles. The energy of these people is the key to the development of the Kaliningrad region, and the government should help them and contribute. The Kaliningrad region has been and remains the Russian region for cooperation with Russia's European neighbors. These links must be strengthened and developed.
