According to the chairman of the regional executive committee, Decree No. 7, which provides for changing mechanisms of interaction between state bodies and business, minimizing the interference of officials in the work of business entities and strengthening self-regulation of business as well as the responsibility for its work to the society.
Deputy Chairman of the Committee for Economy of the Regional Executive Committee Pavel Marinenko commented on the implementation of the state program in the region concerning small and medium businesses. According to him, since the beginning of the year, 449 new commercial organizations have been registered in the region, and the largest number of them - 47, in the Mogilev region. Due to the creation of industries and enterprises more than 2130 people are employed and the overwhelming majority of new work places were created by private business companies.
Pavel Marinenko added that the quantitative growth in the number of business entities is not always an indicator of their contribution to the economy. "Business grows up, it becomes bigger. Weak companies are leaving the market. Therefore, the most important task is to create conditions not only for start-up entrepreneurs, but also for the existing companies to strengthen and develop"- he stressed.
