Experts consider Bashkortostan comfortable for business activity

author: Lubov Kolokolova

Bashkortostan remains comfortable for business and attractive for foreign capital thanks to the great number of free spaces suitable for business activity and installation of modern equipment. The region still holds leading positions in the country by the number of newly established techno-parks and business-incubators. The assistance to innovational processes, such as exemption, for example, is also well-developed in the Republic. This is the information, published in the journal “Business-climate in Russia”, issued by the company “OPORA-CREDIT” with the assistance of the all-Russian public organization “The Support of Russia”.

“As for the majority of Russian regions, the shortage of well-qualified specialists remains the key problem for the Republic. Besides, local business unwillingly invests in innovations, though moneyed assistance for the businessmen, whose innovational ideas find applications, is widely practiced in the region. But more means is invested in development of medium business: here the highest number of workplaces is opened and it is easier to monitor the money flows. At the same time small business is left on its own” – the experts of the journal say.

In order to remove these disproportions Bashkir authorities work up the Concept for development of small business till 2020 and as the deputy Prime-Minister of the Government RB – the Minister of economic development RB Vladimir Balabanov says, the document has to be completed till the end of the year. Moreover, at the conference “Business-success-2011’, held in Ufa on Tuesday, Vladimir Balabanov stated that successful realization of this concept is able to make small business in Bashkortostan really innovational.
