Dear Colleagues,

An important priority of our economic policy is the development of our agro-industrial complex. Small and medium-sized businesses are actively involved in its implementation; and we'd like to see big business involved too, particularly in the establishment of modern production facilities for processing agricultural products. A large field in the application of forces and resources for this category of entrepreneurs consists of resorts and recreation complexes.

With regard to transport, communications, trade and other areas of public service, there has long been a strong position occupied by SMB representatives; and we expect them to work effectively towards the development of these socially-important industries.

The government of the Republic continues to create the most favorable conditions for business development, for investment, and for the establishment of new industries. We are focused on improving business climate and strengthening the legal safeguards for the property.

Welcome to Kabardino-Balkaria!

Sincerely, Head of Kabardino-Balkaria Yuri Kokov
