Subsidies from various Federal programs must be calculated for three years for greater efficiency, said the Director of Association of innovative regions of Russia (AIRR), Vice-rector of the Russian presidential Academy of national economy and state service under the President of the Russian Federation (Ranepa) Ivan Fedotov.

And the authorities need to make their own decisions on what to spend: on the development of infrastructure, the social sphere and agriculture,” – said Fedotov.
