To Lure Foreign Investment, Russian President Calls for Reforms

MOSCOW – The president of Russia, Dmitri A. Medvedev, on Wednesday proposed a sweeping change to the management of the country’s many state-run companies, saying an overhaul that would remove ministers from the boards of directors is overdue.

If enacted as proposed, the change would unwind one of several formal mechanisms of state control over the economy put in place by Mr Medvedev’s predecessor, and now prime minister, Vladimir V.
