He noted that in the health sector it was necessary to focus on fight against cancer, to reduce mortality from diseases of the circulatory system and to provide assistance to people suffering from heart diseases.
Igor Komarov added that by 2021 all children under the age of 3 years should be provided with places in kindergartens.
According to him, one of the main priorities in the housing sector was to increase the volume of construction.
"In accordance with the federal project 'Housing', the region needs to introduce 1.3 million square metres. [ ... ] It is necessary to pay attention to the fact that the housing should correspond to purchasing power of the population," the plenipotentiary envoy emphasized.
Igor Komarov called the issue of deceived construction investors delicate specifying that there were 1,700 such people in the Penza region.
He also pointed out that the developed roadmap for the completion of houses had to be implemented without failures.
In addition, plenipotentiary representative of Russian President urged to pay attention to those buildings that had not been recognized as problematic yet but whose commissioning was delayed by more than six months.
According to Igor Komarov, it is of great importance to solve the issue of dilapidated housing in the Penza region, as in other regions of the district.
He recalled that by January 1, 2017, about 70,000 square meters of housing had already been included in this category.
Among the priorities, the plenipotentiary representative also mentioned full transition to a new system of solid municipal waste treatment and elimination of accumulated objects of environmental harm.
Speaking about road repair, Igor Komarov noted that the Penza region was the leader in the district but there was still a lot to be done.
