Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Ulyanovsk region to become a consolidating center for regional business development

The cooperation agreement between the Government of the region and the Ulyanovsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry has been signed by the Governor Sergey Morozov and the President of the organization Alexander Yakunin.

 “Association of entrepreneurs, public organizations, development institutes, public authorities and local government, experts and educational institutions will help to develop economy of the Ulyanovsk region and create favorable conditions for doing business. We have to unite and consolidate our efforts, speak with one voice capable to solve any problems and to overcome any crises” - the head of the region noted.

According to the President of the Ulyanovsk Chamber of Commerce and Industry Alexander Yakunin, the Chamber has already prepared the plan and the strategy of work, which includes development of foreign trade relations and will be based on the best regional and world practices.

“The Chamber is ready to actively participate in implementation of the new risk-oriented model of government control. In addition, I think that the Chamber will play a significant role in interaction with authorities in the sphere of regional tariff policy. Another very important task is to establish in the region a comprehensive system of subcontracting for small and medium-sized enterprises. In particular, I am talking about contracts in the sphere of of the defense and civil industry”, - Alexander Yakunin said.

According to development plans, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry will serve as a “one-stop-shop” for business enterprises in the whole territory of the region and in each municipality.

“Today, unfortunately, the system that helps businesspeople to analyze the existing production chains is underdeveloped. We need to carry out serious analytical work to create information databases of our large industrial enterprises, which are available for integration. In addition, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry is quite important for foreign missions and we need to use it to promote production of our region's enterprises at foreign markets. All around the world business associations are consolidated on the basis of Chambers of Commerce and Industry in accordance with the law, and in Russia, unfortunately, they are not obliged to become members of such organizations. Nevertheless, this is the main platform for B2B communications and implementation of business projects”, - noted Ruslan Gaynetdinov, the Chairman of the Board of the Corporation for Enterprise Development of Ulyanovsk Region.
