"Today, with the President's approval of five national goals that focus on making life better for every individual, each region faces the challenge of synchronizing its strategies with the national goals. Krasnodar Region went this way back in 2018, when its socio-economic development strategy through 2030 was approved. We paid a lot of attention to sustainable development. The focus is to improve the quality of life of the population. We understand that it is impossible to create comfortable living conditions if we deal only with economic or only social aspects. Of course, the environmental component directly affects the quality of life of the population," said Alexey Yurtayev.
