MOSCOW, October 6 (Itar-Tass) — The state must not substitute for business in the economy, while the space for a private initiative must be consistently expanded, Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said at the Russia Calling investment forum.
“We believe that the mission of the state is to offer a shoulder to entrepreneurs there where it is necessary and remove those barriers that impede them,” the prime minister stressed.
“It is obvious that in order to make investments in our country prestigious and advantageous, it is necessary to minimize risks, both economic and administrative,” the prime minister stressed. “And the predictability of the political course is no less important than macroeconomic stability,” Putin added.
According to the prime minister, “reasons for making control checks have been reduced, the procedure of attracting foreign specialists for work in Russia has been liberalized, and we are updating technical regulations within the framework of the Customs Union”.
“All bills involving the interests of business will be discussed with entrepreneurs and with their leading associations,” the prime minister stressed.
He also reminded the audience that “starting from this autumn, business also gets an opportunity to influence not only projects but also the correction of bylaws in force if they impede entrepreneurs’ activity in this or that way”.
