Today "Levoberezhny" Bank and the Government of Krasnoyarsk Krai have signed an agreement promoting small and medium businesses. The document was signed by the Prime Minister of the region Victor Tomenko and General Manager of the Bank Vladimir Shaporenko.
The parties agreed to open several information desks of the regional multifunctional center providing state and municipal services in one of the bank’s offices. They will work directly with entrepreneurs.
"This is a new direction announced within the framework of the federal priority project "Small Business and Support for Individual Business Initiative". Centers should be established in the regions to provide government services to businesses on the basis of banks and other interested organizations. Bank "Levoberezhny" is accredited by "SME Corporation" which participates actively in federal projects, so we are also ready to joint our forces here. In fact, today we are expanding the capabilities of our MFC, divide individuals and legal entities to make the process of providing public services more comfortable for people", Victor Tomenko said.
He also added that formation of a network providing public services in one place is one of the tasks set by the President of Russia in May 2012. This network was being formed and tested in Krasnoyarsk Krai for four years and was completed in December 2016. Today local residents can get more than 500 state and municipal services in 62 centers and 142 territorially separate structural divisions, in total 731 "windows" have been created. The coverage rate of state services in the region is even more than we expected: instead of 90% planned it reached 95%. The project proved its relevance by constantly growing number of applicants: in 2016 almost 1.5 million applicants applied to our centers, almost a half of the residents. "I expect the agreement to help greatly small and medium-sized businesses. The project that we call "MFC for Business" will be useful and interesting for entrepreneurs," Chairman of the Government said.
Vladimir Shaporenko said: "We have gained significant experience while working with the MFC. The centers are in high demand, they are convenient, so I was very pleased to be invited to this project."
