The number of small and medium-sized enterprises in Khabarovsk has grown over six months, despite the restrictive measures for coronavirus. From January to June, 33 enterprises were registered, which is 778% more than in the same period last year.

According to the press service of the Khabarovsk administration, the turnover of small businesses in the first half of the year amounted to 166 billion rubles - this figure decreased by a third. But, according to the head of the city department of economic development, Alexander Anisimov, business is preparing to resume its activities. The rate of decline in turnover is not catastrophic: more than 430 billion rubles, or 90% compared to the same period in 2019.

According to Anisimov, almost all enterprises of the Khabarovsk industry since the beginning of May have returned to their normal operation after quarantine measures, some even increased production volumes.

Due to fish processing, production in the food industry is expected to grow - the dynamics will be 165% compared to the first half of last year. Due to OJSC Dalkhimpharm, an increase in indicators in the production of medicines is expected - 120%. Positive dynamics are noted in the repair and installation of machines - an increase of 113%.

At the same time, Alexander Anisimov noted that the unemployment rate in Khabarovsk remains quite high - seven thousand unemployed are registered with 4,5 thousand vacancies.

The head of Khabarovsk, Sergey Kravchuk, said that earlier the mayor's office and municipal enterprises submitted 600 vacancies to the labor market, but so far only 12 of them have been demanded. The mayor asked to analyze this situation and recalled the need to find additional reserves for the employment of citizens.
