Vladimir Putin said that in his previous position as Deputy Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities, Maxim Yegorov had been at the forefront, considering that the ministry is one of the most important and busy government agencies whose performance has a direct effect on the wellbeing of the country and of individual people. In addition, Maxim Yegorov also has regional experience, because he had been an adviser to the Tyumen Region Governor.
Maxim Yegorov told the President that in his capacity as Deputy Minister of Construction, Housing and Utilities he was responsible for housing and utilities and four federal projects: clean water, the environmental recovery of the Volga River, comfortable urban environment, and the resettlement of people from dilapidated housing. Vladimir Putin noted that Tambov Region had the same priorities.
Maxim Yegorov thanked the President for putting his confidence in him and said that the offer was a challenge for him, considering his experience. He said he was aware of the region’s problems and was ready to try to meet all the goals set to him.
Vladimir Putin expressed the hope that Maxim Yegorov would work energetically to develop the region, applying the skills and knowledge he accumulated in his previous jobs, and wished him every success.
