The participants of the forum "Legprom" were presented with current measures of state support for light industry enterprises


Opportunities and prospects for supporting light industry enterprises in the Republic of Bashkortostan were presented to the participants of one of the industry sections of the forum "Light Industry", which was held in Ufa from October 25 to 26. The speakers of the round table, organized by the Regional Agency for Entrepreneurship, were representatives of the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Innovation, the Industrial Development Fund, the Institute of Standardization and the Development Corporation of Bashkortostan.

In addition to discussing the interaction between business and government, the representative of the Development Corporation, Diana Davletova, presented the current state support measures operating in the special economic zone "Alga". Recall that the agency is the management company of the preferential zone. The development of light industry in the SEZ "Alga" was also commented on by the Director General of the department Nail Gabbasov.

- To date, two large enterprises are successfully operating in the special economic zone "Alga" in the direction of the light industry – «ZASPORT » and «Arcade ». With each of them, we have gone from the very start of the project to the launch of production. For light industry enterprises, the SEZ "Alga" is attractive because it is here that special state support measures are in effect for investors: tax and rental benefits, as well as the operation of a free customs zone. Investors have repeatedly noted the successful geographical location of the SEZ, which significantly affects the solution of logistics issues," Nail Gabbasov said.

Maxim Kozlov, Deputy General Director of the company "ZASPORT", a resident of the SEZ "Alga", also became one of the speakers of the round table. He noted the comprehensive support and attentive attitude of the Government of Bashkortostan to the residents of the preferential zone and the importance of the Development Corporation in the implementation of projects in Bashkortostan. He also stressed that it was with the support of regional authorities and the action of training programs of employment centers that the company's staff increased by 50 employees.
