The time has come for a more efficient execution of investment policies in all natural monopolies, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov said while opening a cabinet session on Wednesday. The Cabinet of Ministers is considering an investment programme sponsored by the Railways Ministry. According to the Premier, a stress in this issue is laid on the improvement of management of property which is mostly controlled by the government and on a simultaneous reduction in costs, mainly non-manufacturing ones. "It's crucial to analyse the spending of tax-payers' money," Kasyanov said.
After it turned out that Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov included the Fonbet betting company in the list of backbone enterprises that can count on state support, everyone started talking about these bookmakers.
