In the Amur Region, they developed a plan for the development of the regional economy in the context of the spread of coronavirus. It was based on measures to support business and ensure employment of the population.

According to the press service of the regional government, the document was formed on the basis of proposals of local authorities and entrepreneurs. It involves the provision of targeted social assistance to citizens who find themselves in a difficult life situation - support for housing and communal services, reimbursement of expenses for the purchase of products.

The plan provides for the organization of temporary employment for the unemployed and an increase in budget allocations for the payment of benefits. For business, they want to expand the list of industries that are eligible for state support in the context of the coronavirus pandemic. The victims are suggested to include entrepreneurs engaged in retail trade in non-food products, private health care, pre-school education, passenger transportation, construction and utilities.

The document provides for a number of tax benefits, among which are a reduction in the tax rate on the simplified tax system, the introduction of a zero tax rate for newly registered entrepreneurs, and a 50% reduction in property tax rates. All proposals will soon be sent to the Russian government for consideration.
