The Small Business Development and Support Fund of Bashkortostan Republic and the Regional Leasing Company (RLC) signed a Cooperation Agreement.
The signed agreement subject is cooperation on access of the republican small business to the product "Preferential Equipment Leasing for Small Business Subjects" under the preferential leasing program of JSC "SME" Corporation" implemented by the RLC.

The General Director of JSC Regional Leasing Company Azamat Asadullin said that the signed agreement was the first signed by the RLC with the development institutions of the republic.
"It is important that the Fund and the RLC actively interact with each other. It is even more important that these are two most powerful organizations supporting the entrepreneurship of the republic, which joint assets exceed 2.5 billion rubles. This is especially true in the period when the service model of providing state support to small and medium-sized businesses is actively introduced. Due to this procedure, an entrepreneur, addressing to one organization, receives full information about the support measures provided by all organizations of the business support infrastructure", said Vadim Utyashev, the first deputy chairman of the State Committee RB for Entrepreneurship and Tourism.
The joint-stock company "Regional Leasing Company of the Republic of Bashkortostan" was established in November 2017.
