On 29 November, the V Annual Conference "100 steps to the favourable investment climate" was held in Moscow. The President of "Business Russia" Alexey Repik attended the event, organized by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and news agency TASS.
"The future growth will be achieved by two factors — technological development and human orientation. That is why we have expanded the National entrepreneurial initiative — by the National Technology one (NTI). However, all depends on a person; therefore, I think that instead of measuring the overall business environment temperature (which, in fact, reflects our leap in the World Bank ranking Doing Business) we need to slowly move to the measurement of individual parameters for a person, both for an entrepreneur and his employees. Moreover, it is no coincidence that today we are back to the idea, which is called 'hospitality' by our Western colleagues, which is now natural habitat in the regions. The quality of success of the regional investment climate, for me personally, depends on the quality of education, health, and the quality of life in the region. And the social aspect of the investment attractiveness of regions will begin to gradually take precedence over the simplification of procedures, because in this area, we have already achieved quite a lot," said the head of "Business Russia" Alexey Repik.
