TASS.- The President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin has promised the inclusion of the procurement of school buses in the list of support measures for the automotive industry. Putin has made the relevant statement during a meeting on the development of the automotive industry.

“Naturally, we have made preparations for this meeting and took a number of proposals into account. However, concerning school buses, I’m of the opinion that better measures should be taken” – Putin said.

The president has given the assurance that if nothing is available amongst the measures that the government has worked out, attention will definitely be paid on the areas that remain outside the brackets.

The Russian leader has stated that he clearly remembers from previous years, particularly during the period of the global economic crisis in 2008-2009, that the procurements of school buses continued without interruption. “We will remember this fact” – said the head of the government.

The proposal to extend the programme for the purchase of ambulances and school buses to 2020 was made by the president of the GAZ Group Vadim Sorokin.
