Conducting the SCO Summit in Ekaterinburg is a Positive Appreciation Made in Recent Years - Evgeny Porunov

Conducting the SCO summit in Ekaterinburg demonstrates that federal authorities have given positive appreciation to significant changes that have occurred in the city in recent years, said the chairman of the Ekaterinburg City Duma Evgeny Porunov.

According to him, the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is currently trying to hold major events at international level not only in Moscow but also in St. Petersburg, Khabarovsk, Khanty-Mansiysk. The government faces the different parts of Russia to the world. And Ekaterinburg has not by any chance got into the list. According to Evgeny Porunov, this was conducive to the fact that the Ural capital is the center of the UFD, and is located on the border of Europe and Asia. But what is more important, that in recent years Ekaterinburg has rapidly been developed; the city has acquired quite a lot more attractive appearance in terms of development of domestic infrastructure and economy, and in terms of diplomatic and cultural ties.

«The decision to hold the SCO summit in Ekaterinburg has led to the construction of new facilities, to work on reconstruction, major repairs, gardening, and improvement of the city. But these issues are not from the zero point. In recent years we have planned for this approach, so the city has not by any chance been chosen as the venue for the summit of SCO and BRIC. But to some extent, such high forums once again led the leaders of the municipality to see what and which way is being done in the city. By this time, the citizens may conclude that despite the difficult financial and economic situation, the main preparatory works were managed to be done. It happened to do everything that was planned for the budget, and much of what was funded by private investors. No one denies to having been some problems, of course, but on the whole the city is ready for the SCO»,- said Evgeny Porunov.

The City Duma chairman stressed that much work was accomplished by local resources without the involvement of federal funding.

«Holding of the summit will for sure contribute to the expansion and hardening of diplomatic and economic ties, especially at the federal level. Ekaterinburg in this way will work for the federal agenda. You can also expect some positive effect for the municipality. Such great forums will undoubtedly play a positive role in strengthening ties with municipalities and businesses from other countries, with India and China in particular. We are at least looking forward to it»,- said Evgeny Porunov.
