“Fairly, the region has moved forward somewhat in the national rating, – this is very good, -said Alexander Kostenko, the chairman of the Economic Policy and Property Committee at the Legislative Assembly of Primorskiy region – this credit goes to businessmen to a greater extent than powers that be. At the same time, much is to be done considering that everything changes in the economic structure, and rather quickly. Of great importance here is not only steps of major investors, but steps of medium and small business, because this is the sector that prevails now. That’s why I would draw special attention not so much to successes, which are undoubtedly achieved, as to those steps which should be taken, as far as we are responsible for regional development. In this regard, the ASI, business community and authorities are to understand a way to move in the years to come”.
