According to the Governor,

"It is pleasant to see that concerned residents of the Irkutsk region develop their skills and participate in the creation of a community of the best leaders. I appreciate the consideration of such an important issue for the region as "Support measures for attraction of young people to rural areas of the Irkutsk region".

Leaders of Russia is an open competition for the new generation of leaders, which gives an opportunity to receive a grant for the development of their projects and to join the community of the best managers of the country.

Margarita Tsyganova, Minister of Youth Policy of the region, reported that about two thousand residents of the Irkutsk region applied for participation. They competed in management decisions and passed computer tests. The candidates solved a case «Support measures for attraction of young people to rural areas of the Irkutsk region" at the regional stage of the competition.

The participants worked in four teams. They analyzed the problems and their causes, discussed the implemented measures and made proposals for the support of the youth in rural areas.

 The contestants presented their case solutions at the meeting with the governor. Team No. 1, which included Aleksei Govorkov, Director of School of Information Technology and Data Science at INRTU, presented the best project.

Aleksei Govorkov says,

"There were 10 people in our team. Our task was to solve the problem of population outflow from rural areas. For this purpose, we analyzed existing support measures and best practices. We noted the successful project of Nikita Rossov, who opened a cheese dairy "Milasha" in Khomutovo.

We propose to create an integrated information platform, which will be used to describe the advantages of living in rural settlements and to provide ready-made business plans for entrepreneurs wishing to start their own business."

Stepan Bykov, Vice-Rector for International Affairs, the winner of the Science track of the Russian Leaders 2021, presented the solution of Team № 3 to the governor. Klimentiy Batoroev, Advisor on Digital Transformation to the Vice-Rector for International Affairs, was also part of this team.

Alina Kuz'mina, Associate Professor at the Department of Radioelectronics and Telecommunication Systems of INRTU, has experience in the management competition. At the university she heads the research laboratory of physical properties of micro- and nanostructures. She also became a finalist of Leaders of Russia in 2022.

On the proposal of the head of the region, the contestants will link the suggested solutions to support youth in 35 rural areas.

At the end of the meeting, the Governor presented the winners of the regional stage with letters of appreciation from the Government of the Irkutsk Region and wished them success in the district final.
