The conference “Staffing for small and medium business” has taken place in the Government RB on April 1. It was initiated by the all-Russian small and medium business undertakings organization “The Support of Russia”.

The President RB Rustem Khamitov, the deputy Prime-Minister of the Government RB Zugura Rakhmatullina, heads of profiled ministries and departments, rectors of the Republican and Russian institutes and representatives of public business organizations have taken part in its work.

As the President RB stated, the theme of technical and engineering education becomes very relevant now.

“Small business should be formed as the production and innovational environment” – Rustem Khamitov said – “We need competent engineers, able to advance new designs in the market, we need generators of ideas and specialists of a new formation”.

The President has posed the problem on development of innovational business, wide introduction of outsourcing and formation of clusters around big regional enterprises. In his opinion small and medium business should group itself around the industrial giants as bees around the bee-hive. This is the way the whole world runs along and now the regions start competing for the right to open new clusters on their teritories.

In opinion of the President of “The Support of Russia” Sergey Borisov small business doesn’t stands for just trade but highly efficient innovational production..

Rectors of the institutes were talking about a new concept of cooperation between business and professional education. In particular, the rector of the Moscow State Technical University by N. Baumann Anatoly Alexandrov has reported that the chair of innovational business undertakings will be opened soon at the University.

Participants of the conference have discussed other problems, for example, the possibilities of the educational institutions in sphere of specialists’ training for small and medium business.

At the end of the conference the chairman of the state business undertakings and tourism committee RB Ruslan Kinzikeev has outlined the main directions of state policy in sphere of personnel training for small and medium business.
