The experts calculated the rating of the country's population involvement in small and medium-sized businesses. Primorsky Krai was among the leaders in the Far East, and several Far Eastern territories did not rise above 70 lines.

According to RIA Rating, due to the fall of the economy in 2020, the share of residents working in the field of small business has decreased in the country. In total, this segment employs 1,1% of the total workforce, which is 4% less than in 2019. However, in the regions the situation is not so uniform: the share of employed in SMEs varies from 1,7% to 24%.

In Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Kaliningrad and Nizhny Novgorod regions, the involvement in this sector is higher. In the resource regions, for example - Yakutia, where salaries at large mining enterprises are much higher, the number of workers at small enterprises is smaller.

In terms of the number of employees in SMEs, Primorsky Krai was ahead of other Far Eastern regions, which was on the seventh line. Over the year, the share of the population working in this segment increased by 1,2%.

On the ninth line was the Khabarovsk Territory. But despite this seemingly positive result, the region has seen one of the most significant declines in the share of SMEs employed in Russia. During the year, small businesses lost 20,3% of their employees.

Kamchatka ranked 26th (+ 7,3% of the employed in SMEs per year), next to it, at the 28th line of the ranking - Magadan Region (+ 1,5%). The Sakhalin Region, although it did not turn out to be an outsider, having taken the 37th place in the rating, lost 7,5% of workers in small and medium-sized businesses over the year. And in the Amur region, which is in 56th place, the losses were even more - 13%.

Buryatia is on the 71st line of the rating. Here, in 2020, SMEs lost 9,8% of the employed population. Yakutia, although it added 0,7% of employees in this segment, did not rise above 72 lines.

The 74th place was taken by the Jewish Autonomous Region, where over the year the share of employed in SMEs decreased by 7,4%. In Chukotka, the negative dynamics turned out to be almost twice as high - 14,7%, in general, among the regions of the country in terms of number, the Autonomous Okrug has 76 results.

Transbaikalia turned out to be even lower - 77th place in the rating. Even the positive dynamics did not help the region - over the year the share of employed in SMEs increased by 2,3%.
