President: work to improve business conditions will be continued
The national investment climate rating in the regions of the Russian Federation, established by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives five years ago, provided an incentive for the regions to work on improving business conditions, said Russian President Vladimir Putin, speaking at a plenary session of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.
“He became an incentive for management teams in the regions to change their approaches, to support business people who are willing to invest in creating jobs, expanding and updating their enterprises,” said the head of state, referring to the rating.
Vladimir Putin stressed the importance of continuing work to improve the investment climate throughout Russia and to build an effective interaction between business and government. According to him, one of the useful tools in this will be a special information platform through which entrepreneurs will be able to directly report their problems.
“I hope that thanks to such cooperation, a significant step will be taken to improve the investment climate and increase the transparency of the business environment so that the conditions for entrepreneurial initiatives of small, medium and large businesses correspond to the large-scale strategic goals that our country faces”, the President stressed.
