Entrepreneurs received more than 43 million rubles of support in Khabarovsk

Over 60% of entrepreneurs in Khabarovsk want to take advantage of business support during a pandemic. About 400 of them have already received property support for a total amount of over 43 million rubles - this is a deferment of payments for the rental of property, land, advertising structures, as well as non-stationary objects of trade in the tourism sector.

More than three thousand can claim bonuses in the form of tax preferences and cash subsidies. According to the press service of the city administration, since the beginning of April, public organizations have been monitoring the economic condition of small and medium-sized enterprises, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives has created a “Well-being Map” of the business, which is constantly updated. She shows that over the past three months, the situation has gradually leveled off: if in April 98% of entrepreneurs noted a decrease in revenue, now this figure is 94%.

According to Grigory Korobko, Deputy Head of the Department of the City Department of Economic Development, this was achieved thanks to the transition to the remote option of work, delivery of goods and food. Now, he said, far fewer businessmen think about bankruptcy of enterprises than at the beginning of a pandemic. So, 47% of entrepreneurs believe that they can keep and continue their business, in April there were 40% of such positive-minded representatives of the business community. A quarter of respondents continue to think about bankruptcy, 28% of entrepreneurs do not yet make forecasts.

After the introduction of restrictions on coronavirus, many entrepreneurs had to cut their staff by 10-20%.

One of the most significant business problems remains the decline in demand for the offered goods and services. More than 62% of the interviewed entrepreneurs consider this problem to be the main one.
