For today the employment centers in towns and regions RB have already held about 300 meetings of the commissions for consideration of the business-plans, offered by the unemployed people. 1255 contracts on assistance to development of small business undertakings and self-employment have been signed with such citizens and the overall sum of the contracts concluded is 119,5 million rubles. Thanks to that more than two thousand new workplaces in sphere of small business can be opened in Bashkortostan.
