The President of Bashkortostan Rustem Khamitov has held a work meeting with the President of the all-Russian public organization “The Support of Russia” Sergey Borisov and discussed the problems of small and medium business with him.

“It is decided in the nearest future the rate of the unified tax on imputed earnings will be lowered from 15 to 5%” – Sergey Borisov said to journalists after the meeting with the President RB – “More than 60 Russian regions have already lowered this rate and this step has to favorably influence upon the activity of those businessmen, who work on the simplified taxation system. Local law-makers have to approve the corresponding decision in Bashkiria”.

“The President RB feels the situation in the region quite well and understands the problems of small and medium business. He understands that small business should become an important partner for big business” – the President of “The Support of Russia” said.

In opinion of Sergey Borisov Bashkiria possesses high innovational potential and investment attractiveness and it can contribute to development of small and medium business.

“We will struggle for the creative class, for the people, offering innovational ideas and we have to create all necessary conditions for such people. We will do everything possible for attraction of the investors and promising projects to the region” – Sergey Borisov stated.
