In 2009 Ufa has held the second place among cities of Volga federal district by the number of trade areas, put into exploitation, the head of Ufa administration Paul Kachkaev reports.

“As for Russia in a whole we hold the sixth place – also quite good” – he said.

According to M-r Kachkaev the trade sphere in our city doesn’t cause a lot of trouble to local administration. Besides, it has suffered from the crisis less than others. It can be explained by the fact that the Ufa food market depends upon foreign import less than in other Russian cities. For example, Ufa supplies itself with the foodstuffs, admitted the most necessary for population, by 77-80% and in Moscow this index is equal just to 66%.
