On June 29, Viktor P. Tomenko, Altai Krai Governor, met with the young politicians and public figures representing city authorities and organizations of Altai Krai. The meeting was held at the courtyard of Altai State University.

Rector of Altai State University Sergey V. Zemlyukov met the Governor and showed him the favorite place of rest for teachers and students of the university – the University courtyard, briefly spoke on the events held at this site and took part in the meeting with the youth.

Opening the informal open-air event, Natalia S. Kuvshinova, a member of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation of the VII convocation, a member of the State Duma Committee for Physical Culture, Sport, Tourism and Youth Affairs, a member of the United Russia party and a graduate of Faculty of Law of Altai State University, noted that the cozy courtyard at the flagship university of Altai Krai was chosen as a meeting place not by coincidence. Many of the young activists are ASU graduates, and the formation of their successful career began precisely within the walls of the classical university. They are specialists in the field of education, health, business, road industry, social and political life who have one common goal – the development of the Altai Territory. Today, each of them has achieved success in their field of activity.

The Governor listened to the questions, proposals, and ideas of young parliamentarians from all over Altai Krai, and thanked them for their readiness to meet and exchange opinions on various pressing issues and topics.

"About a month ago I was appointed to the position of Altai Krai Governor and now I take the first steps in the post of a regional leader. This work requires not only good understanding of the governance mechanisms of state and municipal systems, interaction with different spheres, economic and social life. First and foremost, this requires a vision of how people live in the region, what they think, what they hope for, what wishes they have. Within a month of my work I tried, taking into account my working schedule, to hold the maximum number of meetings with the inhabitants of the region, regardless of the number of participants. Such meetings are very important and useful, as they help to create the clearest picture of the life in our region,” Viktor P. Tomenko said at the meeting. ”Today, I suggest talking about the future, taking into account your work experience and the specifics of interaction with young people. As the leader of the region, I will pursue a policy of openness, plan a lot of events, where you can simply communicate without formalities. Therefore, I urge you all to talk openly about your affairs, and I will absorb your thoughts and suggestions like a sponge. By the way, I will be able to react to some of them."

During the meeting, a number of topical issues were discussed, including those regarding legal education of young people, programs for young entrepreneurs support, vocational education system, job placement for young people, etc. Viktor P. Tomenko discussed the issues with interest, stressing in conclusion that a productive conversation had taken place. In the future, he suggested thinking about planning joint work and scheduling such meetings.
