Sberbank will expand its presence in rural areas of Yakutia and sign a cooperation agreement with the Republic

Prime Minister of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Galina Danchikova held a working meeting with the Chairman of the Baikal Bank Sberbank of Russia Vladimir Salmin, the press service of the regional government reports.

Vladimir Salmin, Chairman of the Baikal Bank of Sberbank of Russia, informed the Prime Minister about the Bank's activities, plans and prospects for mutually beneficial cooperation in Yakutia. At present, the Baikalskiy Bank operates in four constituent entities of the Russian Federation - in the Irkutsk Region, the Trans-Baikal Territory, the Republic of Buryatia and the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

One of the issues discussed was the introduction of alternative service options. According to Vladimir Salmin, the Bank does not plan to leave rural areas of the republic, on the contrary, alternative options for servicing the population will expand. In the near future two mobile cash points for individuals will start operating in the regions. The third PPKO will start work at the beginning of 2015.

Prime Minister Galina Dachnikova noted that the availability of services for the population is one of the main tasks, and the introduction of alternative service options will solve many questions for residents of localities who use the services of Sberbank. At meetings with the population during working trips in the republic, residents very often raise the issue of opening Sberbank branches or installing a Sberbank terminal in one or another village. Therefore, the prime minister said, the introduction of alternative forms of public service will be perceived only positively. Galina Danchikova placed particular emphasis on serving residents of the Arctic and Northern regions of the republic.

As alternative forms, according to Vladimir Salmin, the options of “electronic village” and the rent of passenger buses for free delivery of clients - residents of settlements to the nearest mobile cash operations point are also considered.

During the working meeting, the sides also discussed issues of cooperation between the government of the republic and Sberbank of Russia in the interests of socio-economic development of the republic, the Bank's opportunities to implement investment projects in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), intensify the development of small and medium-sized businesses, and others.

An agreement was reached on the signing of a cooperation agreement between the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) and Sberbank of Russia OJSC. According to the mutual opinion of both parties, this document should not be limited to framework directions.

"The agreement on cooperation should precede the real steps, which will be able to track the implementation of actions," said Galina Danchikova. One of the potential areas for long-term cooperation may be the Bank's participation in the implementation of the housing construction program on the territory of the republic, especially in the Arctic regions of the republic. As noted by the prime minister, for today the share of dilapidated and emergency housing in the republic remains high. In spite of the fact that the problem is solved in stages, rather serious resources are allocated from the federal and republican budgets, the Fund for the Promotion of Housing Reform, the problem remains complicated. It is necessary to attract additional sources, introduce modern construction technologies in the Arctic and northern regions, new programs to support mortgage lending and other mechanisms.
