MOSCOW, February 3. /TASS/. President Vladimir Putin is due to meet on Wednesday with the Leaders Club, a union of successful Russian entrepreneurs, to discuss the country’s economy and the problems of small and medium businesses, the Kremlin press service has said.
The Leaders Club, established in February 2012, assesses the conditions of business activity in the regions and the quality of providing state services. The regional network of the club covers more than 40 Russian regions. The chairman of the organization is Artem Avetisyan, who heads of the New Business direction of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives.
In December 2013, Putin tasked the club with analyzing jointly with Russian business associations the efficiency of measures on reducing the amount and the cost of administrative procedures and asked it to present the respective proposals once in six months.
The organization holds regular meetings with the country’s top officials, including Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich, Presidential Aide Andrei Belousov and Communications Minister Nikolai Nikiforov.
