I want to greet you all. We have just seen how work is progressing within the Moglino special economic zone. And of course, your industrial cluster continues to develop actively. It is very conveniently located: on the one hand, the border with the European Union, on the other hand, the entire EAEU. And including through the territory of the Russian Federation, products can be supplied, both for export, and they can come to you. Without a doubt, the business that operates here can focus on two large markets at once – as I said, both the European Union market and the Eurasian market.
The government provides significant support to the special economic zone “Moglino”. Today we spoke quite actively with those who work here. The federal budget financed the creation of its infrastructure in the amount of about 2.5 billion rubles. Due to this, the region can increase its investment attractiveness, create new jobs. In essence, this is such a point of growth and an opportunity to strengthen the economy of the entire Pskov region.
Today we will talk about this in detail.
During our trips to the regions, we visit various enterprises. Not only to see how things are going in a particular production, but also to determine what effect, in general, state support measures give.
Today we envisage a fairly large number of these measures. But we want to understand what the effect is, and get the opinion of business, people who directly use these measures on the ground. We pay special attention to how the solutions to preserve employment in small and medium-sized enterprises work.
Generally speaking, the Pskov region, where we are located, has a very rich history and, I am sure, very good prospects. The Governor does a lot, the people and businesses we meet with are all eager to invest, work, create new jobs, and raise funds for the economy.
Unfortunately, so far everything is not easy with financial resources. The region is part of a group with a difficult socio-economic situation. But even amid the spread of coronavirus infection last year, a number of areas in the region showed quite good growth. In particular, the retail trade turnover, I know, has increased in your country, and the production of agricultural products and a number of manufacturing industries shows significant growth.
To strengthen the economic potential and raise the living standards of people, it is necessary to develop further. The government has developed a special, individual program of socio-economic development for your region, which also provides for significant financial resources – this is 1 billion a year until 2024, that is, only 5 billion rubles. The funds, of course, should first of all be directed to the top-priority problems that exist, in particular today we spoke about the fact that you are seriously mobilizing them for the development of the industrial cluster. We will also talk about this.
I would like you to tell us what questions and problems you have. How do the support measures that the federal government provides to businesses affect your mood? Please, let’s talk. The floor is yours.
