A decision has been made to continue the work on the improvements to the Investment Climate and the elevation of the Murmansk region position in the Russian Regional National Investment Climate Index in 4 working groups:
The administrative and other barriers that stand on the way of entrepreneurs and their business activities would be detected through joint efforts of local Authorities of the Murmansk region and the individual entrepreneurs that have previously received appropriate public services, which will allow for implementation of effective measures of elimination of the barriers in the shortest possible time.
The first results of the working group efforts will be published before the end of this summer.
The information about the implementation of the National Investment Climate Index in the Murmansk region can be found on the Investment web-site of the Murmansk region.
For reference purposes:
Within the framework of the Russian Regional National Investment Climate Index, Agency for Strategic Initiatives and Russian Public Opinion Research Center (VTSIOM) were conducted assessments of the business climate in several key areas:
Regulatory environment (efficiency of company registration procedures, obtaining various business permits and licenses);
Institutional environment (effectiveness of institutions ensuring the security of the business, pressure on businesses and quality of information support);
Accessibility of resources and quality of infrastructure;
Effectiveness of small business support (financial and non-financial).
National Investment Climate Index is based on a comprehensive assessment of the region (data of official statistics, business and experts’ surveys), which makes it objective from the perspective of the business community, as well as useful for the development of executive decisions on the regional and federal authority level.
