A new category of business – "small and medium business +"

The head of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development commented on the results of the last strategic session on the development of small and medium-sized businesses.

He said that within the framework of the national project "Small and Medium Entrepreneurship and Support for Entrepreneurial Initiative" the key task set by the Russian President, namely, to increase the number of people employed in this sector, is being solved.

One of the initiatives under discussion is the creation of a new category of SME+ entrepreneurs. Thus, from 2024 a pilot project will be launched, which will allow entrepreneurs to move from medium-sized enterprises to large ones without losing the usual support measures.
