Krasnodar, 29 May – Yug Times. Our today’s interviewee is Igor Yakimchik, Commissioner for Entrepreneurs’ Rights in the Krasnodar region.
Q.: How would you assess the idea of the formation of a team of business ombudsmen in the cities and rayons of the Krasnodar region?
A.: It should be profitable to open up any production – big, midsize or even a micro entity. This is a task of both federal and regional levels. President Vladimir Putin’s decrees released in May 2018 require an insistent and intense advancement in the issues of cooperation between the business circles and the authorities.
Local commissioners are people that know the life and the complexities of business activity not just by hearsay – most frequently, they are entrepreneurs themselves or work in close contact with them, defending their positions. Among the ombudsmen there also are industrial workers, lawyers and other professionals.
Q.: How much realistic is the task to increase the share of small and midsize businesses in the gross regional product from the current 33% up to 50% by 2030?
A.: The increase of the share of small and middle businesses is an absolutely realizable project. Here we are facing two blocks of issues – protection of entrepreneurs’ rights and business development. The institution of business commissioners works in close contacts with the Russian Government, State Duma, supervisory and controlling bodies and courts. If the assistance of the said structures is efficient, we will undoubtedly achieve the desired results.
