“Supporting small and medium-sized businesses in the Yenisey Siberia regions means a lot to us. We are aware that those are not only large investors, but local entrepreneurs who need to benefit from the implementation of the Comprehensive Investment Project implementation, regardless of the size of their business. They are the foundation for the future economic stability of the three regions: Krasnoyarsk Region, the Republic of Khakassia and the Republic of Tuva. They provide the benefit opportunity for a number of specialists and workers. This is why we realize how important it is to provide them with the opportunity to participate in the Project. The task was set by the Governor, Alexander Uss, who also sees the local business development as a huge economic potential, and we are doing our best to unleash it”, remarked the Director General of the Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation Sergei Ladyzhenko.
