Last week the President Vadim Krasnoselsky approved The PMR Development strategy 2019-2026. The document is designed to serve as a reference point of development of Pridnestrovie in the long term. Its considerable part is devoted to economic policy, at the same time strategy contains also the sections mentioning the main activities of authorities - the roadmap obligatory to execution by all ministries and departments. Let's review to what principles the state and public institutes are guided, what they aspire to.
Pridnestrovie, according to the President, has to be people-centred. In this regard, the strategic importance is attached to ensuring social security and increase level and quality of life of citizens, "in particular those national groups which owing to age, the state of health or other vital circumstances are not able to ensure worthy living conditions and need the support of the state".
"Ensuring stage-by-stage increase in real income of all categories of the population is a basic condition for improvement of quality and life expectancy of the person and also is a strategic objective of all social and economic policy of the state", - it is told in Strategy.
Main objectives of the social policy are called: improvement of quality of life of citizens due to ensuring food security, high-quality and safe goods and services, modern education and health care, availability of sports constructions, creations of jobs and also by creating favorable conditions for increase in social mobility, quality of work, its worthy payment.
The certain place in the strategic plan is taken by the development of institutes of political system and interaction with civil society. Full-scale implementation of the legislation on bases of public (national) control seems basic gradual expansion of categories of participants of such control. Completion of formation of the Institute of public and citizens' initiatives will serve as an incentive for the population to take an active and direct part in the public life of the state.
Besides, it is necessary to develop mechanisms of direct advisory and debatable interaction between public authorities and also political institutes and public associations.
"Existence of such mechanisms allows to reduce bureaucracy contacts of non-state institutes with authorities, guarantees a possibility of the active public to form and address inquiries directly to authorities during the regular debatable actions. This practice will allow forming an image of the government as open and accountable to citizens system that also conforms to the international standards in this area", - it is noted in Strategy.
The important place in the foreign policy agenda is still taken by the settlement of the moldo-pridnestrovian conflict. In this part, the Pridnestrovian diplomacy has to proceed from the principles of support of functioning of all existing negotiation formats and the decision of the practical social humanitarian issues.
"At the same time the most important component of work on settlement of the relations with the Republic of Moldova is the report to audience of foreign countries of information on inalienable right of the Pridnestrovian Moldavian Republic to independence as this course is defined on referendum by the people of Pridnestrovie", - developers of Strategy note.
In the relations with the Russian Federation further strengthening and expansion of a range of political and diplomatic contacts, cooperation in peacemaking and safety, development of trade and economic relations and increase in mutual commodity turnover, increasing cultural and humanitarian communications and interactions through public institutes is represented essentially significant.
The PMR intends to build up the good neighbourhood with Ukraine, to support and increase multilevel communications, to interact as with the guarantor state of the moldo-pridnestrovian settlement and the participant of the peacekeeping processes on the Dniester.
"In the field of foreign economic relations a relevant task is the implementation of the balanced trade with the Eurasian Economic Union and the European Union and also the attraction of foreign investments", - it is emphasized in the document.
Special attention will be paid to an image component. In particular, it is necessary to dispel the existing myths and stamps applied in relation to the PMR, such as "grey zone", "stiffened in time" territory and association of the republic with the armed conflict.
"Preservation in an image of Pridnestrovie of such negative lines creates serious obstacles for the development of the republic, in particular limits investment, tourist potential and also reduces possibilities of political communication with external actors", - authors of the Strategy note.
