Successful development of a region is the result of cooperation between business and government
Success is in those places where business is involved in the evaluation of the work of institutions and procedures, knows that it is involved there, and knows that the results of its participation will affect the evaluation of the work of specific representatives of government bodies and officials. — Andrei Belousov, Aide to the President of the Russian Federation.
A business needs feedback; we are sufficiently democratic to hold meetings, often on-site. The business determines how efficiently tools and mechanisms are operating today in the region — Vyacheslav Shport, Governor of Khabarovsk Territory.
The Governor [of Sakhalin Region] made the following decision: he asked the ASI to send him a business mission. A big business mission arrived and worked on the island with regional authorities, municipalities, and businessmen for several days. People understood what they wanted, what gave them additional opportunities, and this was probably a factor in improving the situation. — Andrei Sharonov, Dean, Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO.
In order to enter the top ten and gain a foothold there, we need a strong, well-equipped team of managers at all levels. The greatest successes occur where there is a team like that and the tools for managing change: investment advice, export support centres, etc. — Alexey Repik, President, Delovaya Rossiya (Business Russia); Chairman of the Board, Group R-Pharm.
