Thus, in 2016 the Murmansk Region entered the TOP-20 regions with the best results of social and economic development of the territories, for the second year in a row the enterprises of the industrial complex have shown a positive trend regarding the industrial production index, and the work on reducing the tax burden on small businesses gives good results.

In addition, the Murmansk Region is among the leaders in terms of the share of small and medium enterprises in state procurement.
