Medvedev to Address New Rules For Global Economy, Politics in Davos - Aide

World Economic Forum Stage and AuditoriumMOSCOW. Jan 21 (Interfax) - Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will speak about the need to change the rules of the game in the world economy and politics in light of ongoing information processes, presidential aide Arkady Dvorkovich said.

"We should change the rules of the game to match the new speed at which investors and politicians are receiving information today. We need to work faster. Medvedev will speak about all this at the forum," Dvorkovich said at a news conference in Moscow on Friday.

"During the forum, the president will continue promoting the idea of forming a new legal framework for the world economic and political systems," he said.

"Medvedev has told his partners more than once, including within the G8 and the G20, that today information flows determine events happening in the economy and politics to a great extent," the Kremlin official said.
This topic concerns Russia directly, he said.

"Our political system is successful not because we have three or four parties, but because people have the possibility to inform the authorities of their opinion and to receive an answer more rapidly," Dvorkovich said.

Dvorkovich admitted he "had quite a hard time" reading tens of thousands of various comments on his remarks about the possible cancellation of student stipends.

"This circumstance means that the situation in politics has changed drastically. We need to discuss it," he said.
