Appeal of O.Yu. The hunger for the conference participants

To the participants of the All-Russian Conference
"Demographic development of the Far East"

On behalf of the Government of the Russian Federation, I welcome the participants and guests of the All-Russian Conference on the issues of the demographic development of the Far East!

Today, the development of the Far East is one of the priorities of our country. The demographic policy in the region is of strategic importance for the protection of national interests and state security.

It is necessary to create conditions for attracting new qualified personnel, youth. Creating a modern social infrastructure and ensuring the availability of high-quality medical services will contribute to an increase in the birth rate.

In the Far Eastern Federal District there is a potential for demographic development.

A positive role was played by measures to support families in connection with the birth and upbringing of children, adopted at the federal and regional levels, as well as measures to modernize public health, strengthen the material and technical base of medical organizations and other activities in the health sector.

The demographic development of the Far East is a whole range of measures, which require the joint efforts of the state and society.

I am confident that the conference will contribute to the achievement of this goal, will become a platform for constructive dialogue and will help to find new effective solutions.

I wish you fruitful work and all the best!

Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation O.Yu. The Hunger
