The event was attended by Deputy Minister of Economic Development Murat Kerefov, Chairman of the Delovaya Rossiya National Public Organisation Alexei Repik, President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs Alexander Shokhin, and General Director of the Dialog Autonomous Non-Profit Organisation Vladimir Tabak, as well as representatives from federal and regional executive authorities, businesses, and the expert community.
The discussion focused on drafting a report for a State Council meeting on improving the investment climate in the Russian regions. Igor Levitin noted that several aspects need to be addressed when putting together the draft report, primarily, the creation of support measures that would encourage investors to invest with companies headquartered in Russian regions, to offset the lack of access to the global financial system, and to allow for establishing a variety of business procedures (regulations, permits, oversight) in a client-centric and transparent manner, regardless of whether the procedure is online or offline. They highlighted the need to analyse the implementation of previous presidential executive orders on improving the investment climate.
Deputy Minister of Economic Development Murat Kerefov reported on the main points of the draft report, with a focus on comprehensive measures designed to systematise investment legislation and to develop support measures.
Delovya Rossiya Chairman Alexei Repik reported on measures that must be taken to stimulate the utilisation of unused federal and municipal lands in order to create favourable conditions for investment projects.
The proposals made during the meeting will be taken into account when drafting a report for the State Council.
