what was the focus at this final session it has to be said as well though that the final question actually from the moderator wasn't in fact about money it was the question that was really on everyone's mind and would it come up before the end of the forum and that of course is whether or not president medvedev is going to run for reelection here is what he said. but when i consider it appropriate to tell you whether i will do it or not i will come out and say it but this forum is not the best place for that one thing you can be sure of is that i would be able to avoid making that statement i will have to tell the people of russia and anyone else who's interested about my decision so secret that president medvedev main platform as president and if you run. reelection will certainly be modernization that's what he opened this forum with and this is the best place to really working detail on projects like school come up with the plan to build someone like silicon valley institute just outside moscow it's well underway in development
