MOSCOW, 12 Mar – RIA Novosti. Shifting business risks onto the budget is not entirely correct, but the state will continue to create all possible conditions for internal business investment, Dmitry Peskov, press secretary of the Russian President, told reporters.
“Business talks about hedging risks. You also saw the government's reaction, which is probably not entirely correct, business risks, and business is in any case a risk, and it is not entirely correct to shift business risks to the budget,” said Peskov.
He noted that a whole set of tools has been developed in Russia at the present time. In the opinion, for example, of representatives of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs (RUIE), it is not effective enough. “But according to the government, on the contrary, some are already showing their effectiveness. Business talks about various instruments related to taxation, and you saw the reaction of the Ministry of Finance,” Peskov added.
According to him, now, during the formation of the list of instructions based on the results of the March 11 meeting on measures to stimulate investment activity, the dialogue with business will continue, including in terms of the formation of additional mechanisms.
“The state is going to and is obliged to create the most favorable conditions for internal business investments. This is the only way to attract these investments and nothing else,” Peskov emphasized.
