The My Business Center is constantly in dialogue with the region’s entrepreneurial community: we hear business requests, create new projects to meet their needs, and share this experience with colleagues from other regions to scale best practices throughout the country. The center team is proud that our experience is spreading and can be useful to entrepreneurs in other regions, — the press service of the Government of Sevastopol quotes the director of the center, Natalia Borisova.
The list of best regional practices in the “Interaction with Regions” rating also includes monthly meetings with control, supervisory and inspection bodies, which are held at the site of the “My Business” center. They are attended by Deputy Governor of Sevastopol Maria Litovko, representatives of the Department of Economic Development, the Prosecutor’s Office, and Commissioner for the Protection of the Rights of Entrepreneurs Ilya Pesternikov. Such interaction helps to resolve emerging issues and problematic issues for small and medium-sized businesses.
