At the same time, regional authorities are obliged to audit all obligations, calculate inefficient costs and redistribute these funds so that they bring real benefits.

According to Alexander Bitarov, this can be both targeted social assistance to the poor and participation in co-financing of federal targeted programs that bring serious public investment to the region, the press service of the regional government reports.

The prime minister of the regional Government described the situation with regional enterprises Oblkommunenergo, Oblzhilkomkhoz, Avtokolonna 1880, which are in a pre-bankrupt state, as critical. Their problems were accumulated over the years, and now the newly formed executive authorities have to solve these problems “in manual mode”. The government intends to retain enterprises that carry an important social burden; now all measures are being taken to normalize their work, to pay off wage arrears.

Speaking about the state of the regional budget of the current year, the Chairman of the Government noted its imbalance. At the end of December, it can be from four to six billion rubles. This is mainly due to certain losses of income tax deductions for enterprises belonging to the consolidated group of taxpayers, as well as to the shortfall in the personal income tax.

- At the same time, we have a national debt, which at the end of 2013 of the year amounted to only 3,1 billion rubles, and now it has grown to 21,5 billion rubles. If we continue this way, then in two years we will reach the maximum of the state debt pledged to the budget, in the amount of about 40 billion rubles, and its maintenance will be annually 5-6 billion Rubles. I believe that this is an unambiguous way to a standstill. We must still live within our means, otherwise we will not be able to fulfill our social obligations, because commercial banks will no longer lend us. And the Ministry of Finance of Russia will withdraw cheap budgetary credits, which today constitute about half of the borrowed funds raised by the region to cover the deficit of our budget, "Alexander Bitarov said.
According to the first deputy governor, the output of the regional government is the same, like that of the whole of Russia, to tighten our belts and work on stabilizing the financial and economic situation. In particular, Alexander Bitarov believes that the Corporation for the Development of the Irkutsk Region, established in 2013, should start actively. Its authorized capital is 1,9 billion rubles, but these funds were used only in the form of deposits.

- This money must be channeled to the real sector of the economy, to support specific projects, possibly creating joint ventures with commercial entities, so that they grow, develop and bring additional revenues to the budget in the form of tax deductions. In the coming months, we will use these financial resources, - said the prime minister of the regional government.

Then Alexander Bitarov, as well as the Deputy Chairman of the Regional Government Ruslan Bolotov and the First Deputy Minister of Finance of the Irkutsk Region Alexander Kanevsky answered questions from journalists.
