The Ministry of Economic Development has received the first applications for the conclusion of agreements on the protection and promotion of investments (SZPK). They provide for the creation of jobs in a volume equal to the population of an entire city. This was reported to chernayakobra.ru in the press service of the ministry.
According to the Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Andrei Ivanov, if 15 applications for projects from all sectors of the economy - mechanical engineering, agro-industrial complex, public transport, mining - are implemented, it will be possible to create more than 35 thousand jobs. The total amount of these projects is 850 billion rubles.
If you think about this figure, together with their families - this is more than 100 thousand people, in fact, the whole city. For an amount of 850 billion rubles - a large number of real people who will be provided with work, and their family members- said First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Andrei Belousov during a meeting of the presidium of the working group to promote the implementation of new investment projects.
Large-scale projects have long construction, investment and operating periods. Belousov stressed that it is extremely important to find an opportunity to reduce their cost. Without this, most projects end up with prohibitive payback periods.
Therefore, the vast majority of projects that we are considering need a stabilization clause., - said the first deputy prime minister.
Belousov also spoke about one of the projects to create a logistics center. Its appearance will open up opportunities for small and medium-sized businesses. This center will be able to work within the country and for export, the official said.
chernayakobra.ru wrote that the Kremlin spoke out against reducing support for small and medium-sized businesses. The press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov said that the proposal of the World Bank to support only those companies that are capable of ensuring economic recovery in a pandemic is wrong.
