The second day of the X St. Petersburg International Innovation Forum was opened with a discussion at the round table "Measures of state support of entrepreneurship: a review of existing state programs and institutions for the development of entrepreneurship, interaction of government and business. Stories of success». Within the discussion, representatives of the St. Petersburg Administration, banks, manufactures and funds of entrepreneurs' support analyzed the projects already implemented, assessed their effectiveness and discussed prospects for applying new support measures for the next 5-10 years.

Thus, Deputy Chairman of the Committee of Industrial Policy and Innovation of St. Petersburg Ivan Skladchikov spoke about the measures of supporting the business, used today by the city Government, their features and their role in the development of perspective industrial zones and the creation of favorable conditions for the development of small and medium businesses in the Northern capital. In particular, he noted that today the work is carried out in three main directions: development of the region as a special economic zone, financial support of enterprises and stimulation of production to foreign markets. "In recent years there has been a tendency to increase subsidies to producers, - Ivan Valeryevich emphasized. - Subsidies are allocated in a number of areas, including compensation for the purchase of equipment for leasing, participation in exhibitions and fairs, training of personnel and much more. Various kinds of prizes and competitions of the city Government are also an effective measure of support. Thanks to this stimulation, we have significantly increased the indicators of increasing labor productivity and the number of high-tech jobs that are created annually. "

In addition, Ivan Skladchikov noted the role of the Government of St. Petersburg in supporting the development of the Perspective Industrial Zones. "For today we have already implemented several projects, - he said. - This is the zone "Rzhevka-Rybatskoye", the zone "Parnas" and others. Indicative is the fact that already today all these territories occupy 14% of the total area of ​​the city. "
