Let me join President Dmitry Medvedev in wishing everyone a happy New Year. I think it is clear that if we have achieved something this year, it is the result of our shared efforts and the support for our work from the President, his Executive Office and the regional authorities. Only by working together have we managed to achieve the modest results Dmitry Medvedev just mentioned. I would like to thank everyone and wish you all a happy new year.
