"This facility is of particular importance for our region because Penza is considered to be the home of Russian circus. It was in our city that the brothers Nikitin gave their first performance in 1873. Unfortunately, even though the construction was almost concluded, the works were not finished because of the carelessness of the contracting organization," the head of the region noted at the meeting that was held in Moscow on Thursday, March 9.
Vladimir Medinsky agreed to the necessity to complete the large-scale construction project.
In addition, Ivan Belozertsev had a meeting with Alexander Tkachev, minister of agriculture of the Russian Federation. During negotiations, the sides came to agreement on the issue of increasing the interest rate on investment credits in agriculture.
Besides, the governor met with Maxim Topilin, head of the Ministry of Labour of Russia. While discussing the realization of federal social programmes, they paid special attention to the issue of the employment of disabled people.
As a result of the negotiations, Ivan Belozertsev invited the minister to visit the Penza region in 2017, the press service of the regional government informs.
