Yekaterinburg releases report on 2013 socio-economic development

Last Tuesday, Yekaterinburg administration head Alexander Yakob reported on municipal socio-economic development in 2013 to members of the city duma.

Yakob's report, which is mandated annually as part of the city's charter, was divided into 12 sections including macroeconomic indexes of Yekaterinburg in comparison to similarly-sized Russian cities, conservation and human development, construction and formation of transport infrastructure development, Ekburg.ru reports.

While the rate of socio-economic development in Yekaterinburg last year exceeded both the regional and national averages, it fell beneath the rate of growth calculated for 2012. \

Yakob noted that analysts estimate the growth slowdown reflects economic stabilization in the city as Yekaterinburg becomes a multi-functional urban area, according to Ekburg.ru.
