Putin: stigma of cheating must be removed from business
The President of the Russian Federation said that it was important to redefine the image that emerged in the 1990s using other concepts.
It is important to replace the image of business as a scam, which developed in Russia in the 90s, with other concepts, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced at the All-Russian Vocational Orientation Forum ProekToriya in Yaroslavl, RBC reports.
“There are those who seek to make a profit at any cost. It is very important that this harmful stigma is not just transformed, but replaced by other concepts,” the president said.
At the same time, Putin noted that dedicating life on earning money is meaningless – it is better to invest in such projects as the Crimean Bridge and the Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works, or in the development of technology. The president urged young entrepreneurs not to grandstand and not to flaunt their wealth.
The ProekToriya forum is held every year. In 2018, more than 500 schoolchildren and 150 teachers gathered there. The participants listen to expert lectures and work in laboratories.
