“We have a task to increase a share of medium and small businesses in the total volume of production to 40 percent. But now, according to various sources, it is about 10 percent. Our republic is industrially developed — petrochemicals, fuel and energy complex, but it is necessary to increase and small businesses production”, Rafael Gibadullin said.
