The problems and requests of business to the authorities on the Day of Russian Entrepreneurship were discussed at several venues at once. Vladimir Putin’s meeting with Delovaya Rossiya came down to solving practical issues related to difficulties in supplying goods to the state, developing new markets, and lacking incentives for investment and innovation under conditions of uncertainty. At another meeting, with Opora Rossii, a discussion involving representatives of the Central Bank and the government’s financial bloc revolved around the reasons for the stagnation of small businesses and ways out of this situation. Although the authorities at such forums promise to help businesses, the limits of their participation in the coming years will be limited by the budget. In such a situation, the concentration of resources on the projects necessary for the state is inevitable.
