“The President drew attention to the need to introduce best management practices in the regions in attracting investments, further optimisation and acceleration of the process of obtaining permits for connecting to communications and constructing facilities. These are very important components for business that allow increasing the intensity of entrepreneurial activity,” he noted.
Oleg Melnichenko added that there was a new instrument at this level – the programme of infrastructure loans.
“It will allow regions to implement capital-intensive projects – to modernise the communications system, to build new facilities, for the creation of which constituent entities do not have enough of their own financial resources, and as a result – to cope with problems that were delayed for years,” the press service of the Penza region government quotes Oleg Melnichenko.
