MOSCOW, November 12. /TASS/. Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev signed the resolution of the government approving the list of 35 state-owned companies, whose procurements will be subjected to government control for allocation of at least one tenth of their procurements for small business. The prime minister made such a statement on Thursday at the Cabinet meeting.
"I signed the decree approving the list of companies, whose procurement plans will be subjected to such control. It comprises 35 companies. These are our major customers - Transneft, Atomstroiexport, Uralvagonzavod, Gazprom and Federal Grid Company," Medvedev said.
"These are the largest customers. They represent different branches of industry: fuel and energy, transport, aircraft production and telecommunications. Their total procurements are estimated as trillions of rubles a year. At least one tenth of the said amount will be allocated now for work with small and medium business," the prime minister said.
This will make possible to compensate influence of the adverse foreign economic background to a certain degree, he added.
