Putin to Improve Transparency at State Companies, Dmitriev Says

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin will probably push for greater transparency and efficiency at state- run companies after he’s elected president again March 4, said Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund.

Putin has pledged to improve Russia’s business climate and has set the goal of making it one of the world’s top 20 countries by that measure, so improvements are to be expected, Dmitriev said in an interview on Bloomberg Television today.
