Support for entrepreneurs on the national project will be adjusted due to COVID-19

Support for entrepreneurs on the national project will be adjusted due to COVID-19

The national project "Small and medium-sized enterprises and the support of individual entrepreneurial initiative" will be adjusted immediately in several ways. Authorities plan to eliminate some targets and add new ones that are socially significant during the coronavirus pandemic.

According to information "Izvestia”, An adjustment due to the coronavirus and its consequences awaits all national projects: Vladimir Putin instructed the Cabinet to amend as early as June. However, while the details are known only about one. The government plans to abandon the calculation of the number of people employed in SMEs, the share of small business in the country's GDP and the share of exports of SMEs.

Instead, the Ministry of Economic Development proposes adding an indicator of the introduction of a “one window” platform into the business environment with mechanisms of targeted support, the creation of new micro-enterprises and the stimulation of their growth. Also, the share of citizens' involvement in business may be added to the performance indicators of the national project, mainly due to the increase in the number of self-employed.

According to Aleksandr Kalinin, the head of Opora Rossii, one should not completely refuse to count the number of people employed in SMEs, since measures to support entrepreneurs because of the coronavirus were taken based largely on this parameter. At the same time, according to his calculations, positive dynamics should not be expected - until August 2020, about one million small enterprises in Russia will close.

At the same time, the Ministry of Finance plans to reduce funding for several national projects at once. The reduction will be about 140 billion rubles
