    MOSCOW, March 10, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - The new government will be oriented to individuals, to ensuring the competitiveness, and the country's positioning in the world. This was said by Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov at his first press conference as head of the Cabinet.

    Mr. Fradkov said that with the change of the government structure, serious transformations in the system of executive power bodies started on the whole.

    "I confirm that it is really a decisive step, it concerns deep transformations of the government structure, it will demand serious organizational measures in the weeks to come," he said.

    The premier noted that there is little time to carry out the planned transformations. Simultaneously with the transformations, it's necessary to continue working and increasing efficiency.

    During the reform, each ministry must be positioned with its tasks, strategy in its branches, with its own policy, organization of the regulation system. As a result, a "single strategic concept" will be formed, a combined system of actions that will orient the government to new quality. "What is meant is orientation to individuals, the ensuring of competitiveness, the country's positioning in the world to ensure decent life," the prime minister said.

    Mr. Fradkov recalled that until now, the ministries represented established bodies of management, combining both political and supervision functions, and their fulfillment. "Forward movement was not always tracked. We understood that and wanted to establish order here," the premier said.

    He stressed that the talk is not only about the improvement of the management system but also about the formation of a reasonable policy linked with the existing possibilities, with the use of market liberal instruments. "And we will continue to follow this path," said Mr. Fradkov.
