MOSCOW, January 20. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin will take part on Wednesday in the plenary session of the All-Russian Business Forum "Small business - a national idea?"
"During the forum entrepreneurs, managers of small and medium enterprises and representatives of relevant agencies will discuss, in particular, the issues of reducing the administrative pressure on private companies, the availability of funds, the effectiveness of government support for small and medium enterprises, steps to improve the tax legislation and the promotion of entrepreneurial activities," the Kremlin press service said.
Putin’s last meeting with business representatives took place on December 24. The president said at that time that Russia, in response to the sanctions, would promote the freedom of entrepreneurship within the country, protect the property and rights of those who do business honestly. Therefore, a key topic of discussion will be the search for solutions to the main problems of small and medium businesses.
The participants in the forum held by the Support of Russia association of entrepreneurs on February 19 and 20 discuss the strategy of developing small and medium-sized businesses until 2030, the organization’s President Alexander Kalinin told TASS. This document is to be submitted by the Russian Ministry of Economic Development to the government before February 1. According to him, "creating market channels, decriminalization of entrepreneurial activities, new approaches to supervision and control systems, whitewashing businesses, including through establishing a fiscal framework, the involvement of wide groups of the population in entrepreneurial activities are the main issues of our forum." Kalinin added that even in the current difficult economic conditions it is quite feasible to ensure the growth of small and medium-sized businesses.
