According to the head of the Cabinet, attracting investments to municipalities is one of the main directions for developing the region's economy, so it is essential to create a comfortable business climate. Various tools are used for this, and one of them is the institution of business sheriffs.
Business sheriffs of the republic provide assistance and advice on any issues related to starting a business, developing a business, or implementing a new project. This is assistance in selecting state support measures and sources of project financing, in the search and registration of land plots, connecting objects to engineering networks (gas supply, electricity supply, heat supply, and water supply), etc.
"Currently, with the support of business sheriffs, 136 projects are being implemented, and 472 new jobs have been created. The total cost of projects is 1.7 billion rubles," Andrey Nazarov cited the data.
