The Far East has something to boil over

In Khabarovsk, the agenda was set for an open discussion platform

At the end of last week, the seventh co-working center in the country opened in Khabarovsk in the format "Boiling points" - the project "Agency for Strategic Initiatives" (ASI) was implemented at the site of the Far Eastern Institute of Management RANEPA. On two floors of the "Boiling Point" you can now drink coffee and chat on any topic. EastRussia tried to figure out what will be discussed at the new site in the near future.

At the opening of the Boiling Point in Khabarovsk, Deputy Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Vladimir Solodov proposed to discuss in this format the prospects for the development of preferential regimes for investors in the Far East. "Now we are at the point where these regimes (the free port of Vladivostok and the territories of advanced development - EastRussia) have already begun to operate, there are residents enjoying preferential terms, it is very important to understand: what should I do next? I would like to address this issue as a whole to work out in the "Boiling Point" - along with those who are already residents, with those who are still stopping, and with those who think how to further develop the regimes, "- explained the deputy plenipotentiary. 

"The first thing that needs to be done is the real involvement of the business community, leaders, young people including in the pre-design of these regimes and the launch of what was described at the Eastern Economic Forum as" entrepreneurial drive. "" Moving "is just beginning to emerge. to understand how to make it so that on the basis of preferences this "dvizhna" was launched, "said Vladimir Solodov. The second phenomenon that should be stimulated is, in his opinion, "the revival of exports: the Far East should begin to take advantage of its location in the center of the Asia-Pacific region." "While we are not using these opportunities sufficiently, especially in terms of using the opportunities for export of small and medium-sized businesses," said the deputy plenipotentiary. 

"And third: these are people. The goal of the development of the Far East is to improve the quality of life of people through the economy. This was the leitmotif of the WEF: how to improve the quality of human capital at points of economic growth. On the one hand, a" bridge "to this is now being built through the adoption of comprehensive plans development of territories. On the other hand, it is personnel training, "said Mr. Solodov. He also promised to regularly discuss these and other issues at the Boiling Point site, adding that the authorities now "have a framework, but it needs to be filled with movement."


The big Far Eastern business on the "Boiling Point" was given the floor in the face of Yuri Yegorov, the owner of the Nevada group of companies. Mr. Yegorov complained that "the most painful is the retention of people." "Middle management, just above, we will only raise it, begin to benefit from it, and profit from it - they are enticed to the central part of Russia." Of course, it seriously complicates our life. "The state also wants the cadres to remain here, but it can be done only through the normal quality of life - to make life here no less comfortable than in the west of the country, "said the businessman. 

The second important problem for the Far East, according to him, is the weak development of private entrepreneurship. “Today there is a serious shortage of products called fresh. These are those products whose shelf life does not exceed 24-72 hours: greens, dairy products, etc. Such products can only be taken from small local producers, farms, but it is impossible to bring them. What we have on our shelves is enough, according to our estimate, to meet 30-40% of the customers' needs, "Yury Yegorov said. Hypermarkets and supermarkets owned by the Nevada Group of Companies "are ready to buy on advance, place orders in advance, pay in advance - just produce," he added.

Entrepreneur immediately involved in the discussion. Moderating the "Boiling Point" director DVIU RANHiGS Vyacheslav Kushnarev asked Yuri Yegorov, "what is the input (to the network" Nevada "- EastRussia) for small businesses - in rubles." "Yes, you know, there is no" input. "If you produce something special, you have good products, a good price is the main thing," the Nevada owner assured. "But I know the situation from representatives of business - they can not go online, to large stores, and when they ask why the products are not on the shelves, they answer: you know, just do not go to supermarkets. ? " - the head of the representative office of the Agency for Strategic Initiatives in the Far Eastern Federal District Olga Kurilova joined in the discussion. 

“In general terms, our policy is as follows: it is enough for an entrepreneur to produce a high-quality product demanded by the population, we will do everything so that it is presented on the shelf,” Yury Egorov assured. "This is a very good reason for communications. Maybe, we need to build a small business right here, and Yuri will invite his colleagues who are responsible for entering stores?" - suggested deputy envoy Vladimir Solodov. "Good offer," agreed Vyacheslav Kushnarev. 


"I would like to continue the discussion: there are a lot of vacancies, there are a lot of specialists, and there are not fresh dairy products and greens on the shelves. In fact, there is such a system failure: we do not know how to talk, we can not hear each other. strategic documents, for the first time we managed to convince everyone that the personnel component was included in all sections of the strategy of Russia's social and economic development, "said Dmitri Butashin, the pro-rector of the Russian Academy of Science and Technology. "Detailed analysis" of staffing needs in the drafting of strategic documents is almost never done, dialogue with business - "not being conducted," he said. "Hence the problem when there is an" unexpected "rapid development of this or that branch, there is a serious shortage of personnel," the pro-rector of the Russian Academy of Science and Technology noted.

However, it is the "Boiling Points" throughout the country that will help establish a dialogue within the regions and between them, we are confident in the ASI and RANEPA. Andrey Siling, Deputy Director of the Young Professionals Department of ASI, explained that such platforms throughout the country should form a network in the future, the elements of which regularly communicate with each other. On November 7, representatives of all seven sites will gather to discuss what issues they can broadcast to other regions. Now in St. Petersburg, for example, at the "Boiling Point" they discuss the NTI markets and technological entrepreneurship, in Ivanovo - technologies of industrial design and fashion. "It is obvious that the Khabarovsk" Boiling Point "will be strong in the areas of management, diplomacy, trade, the transformation of social capital into a quality of life in rather difficult natural conditions - what the territory has always been strong with," said Andrey Siling.

"This is an opportunity for people to communicate openly in a slightly different format. This is something that our current management landscape lacks. Each site is engaged by someone, and you cannot simply come to it without the consent of the conditional owner. Boiling point format - this is the maximum openness and accessibility, and the opportunity to come and work for free. I think the main result for ASI should be the assembly of communities of caring people who are already implementing projects. This is a platform for those who want to find like-minded people, colleagues and partners, "said Mr. Siling , calling the "Boiling Point" an "intellectual pressure cooker".  

Khabarovsk Governor Vyacheslav Shport said that the "Boiling Point" "will consider projects that already exist, but there is nowhere to discuss them." "The government will take part in this, and the likelihood of projects being implemented due to this increases to several degrees. This form will give us the opportunity to develop more dynamically - using the ideas of young people, ideas aimed at the future," said Vyacheslav Shport.
