The Russian president has insisted on including improvement of the socio-economic situation in the North Caucasus and emphasis on moral values in the government's overall strategy for the region.

President Medvedev decided in January to establish a special federal district in the North Caucasus with a special governor who acts as his personal envoy to the region.

The move was designed to help lift the region out of its economic backwardness and rid it of rampant militant violence often caused by clan rivalry, entrenched unemployment and bureaucratic corruption.

Some of these development measures have already begun to see results in promoting the region's economic and social development.

The Russian president has also called upon enterprises in the North Caucasus to help develop the region.

"Everyone who cares about the future of this country and has money must do that," said the president, urging major enterprises to pay their "dues" in the region.

Their contributions will assist in the development and creation of jobs in the region, he added.
