On December 14, the Acting Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov met with the President of the All-Russian Public Association of Small and Medium-Sized Business "OPORA Russia" Alexander Kalinin in the House of the Republic. In Ufa, he takes part in the 13th Congress of the leaders of the organization.
The sides discussed issues of strengthening cooperation, implementing joint projects, supporting small and medium-sized businesses in the republic, the press service of the Acting Head of Bashkortostan informs.
Radiy Khabirov noted that for the first time the republic was hosting such a representative congress of OPORA Russia public association. In his opinion, along with the three most important business organizations – “Delovaya Rossiya”, the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry — OPORA Russia does a lot to create truly comfortable conditions for conducting business.
“I am aware of many of your projects related to the reduction of barriers, with the cessation of excessive pressure on business. It was through the “OPORA Russia” that various diverse forms of business support were created, elaborated and, most importantly, implemented, especially at the first stage – launching business. Significant, complex, hard work was done to decriminalize a number of economic crimes”, the head of the republic stated and expressed his hope that the Government of the republic would continue its close coordination with the OPORA Russia.
In turn, Alexander Kalinin noted that the branch of OPORA Russia association in Bashkortostan "is very good".
“We have about 600 members here. The branch is headed by a wonderful woman Leysan Nikolaeva. We can say that this is a pride of OPORA Russia. Yesterday we had an awarding ceremony for winners of the "Business Success" award. We identified very interesting projects made by the residents of the republic. Now they will go to Moscow to compete with entrepreneurs from all over Russia in January next year. Today we have a plenary session. It will be attended by support institutions, the SME Corporation, the FAS leadership, deputies of the State Duma and the republic. Then we will talk a lot about the formation of the association itself”, said the head of OPORA Russia.
