We were the first among Russian subjects to introduce electronic document management with federal executive authorities, in particular, with the Federal Tax Service. This allowed reducing period of executing documents for entrepreneurs significantly. We’ve successfully implemented the programme of creation of specialized multifunctional centres for business. “One-stop-shop” offices all over the region deal with the most complicated issues,” commented the Governor of Leningrad region Alexander Drozdenko.
