Russian president Dmitry Medvedev said his country's future will depend on two things. They are its ability to sell off government-controlled companies and reduce the power of Russia's central government. Mr. Medvedev said the country has to reform, whether or not he is elected president in the elections next year. He said his personal choice for Russia is to speed up the sale of state companies, cut the number of government employees and join the World Trade Organization. President Medvedev spoke to political and business leaders at gathering in the city of Saint Petersburg.
