The Government of the Russian Federation expanded the national project "Labor Productivity". Now enterprises will be able to participate in it, regardless of sectors of the economy.
The relevant proposals were supported by Andrey Belousov, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.
All backbone companies of the federal list and enterprises with revenues of more than 400 million rubles, regardless of the type of activity, can apply for targeted support in a special manner. Previously, a company that operates in the field of transport, construction, trade, agriculture or is engaged in manufacturing could receive targeted support under the national project. The share of foreign participation could not exceed 50%.
A special order removes these restrictions. However, the region will have to justify the inclusion of the company in the national project on special terms. To do this, the socio-economic effect of targeted support is predicted and targets are determined; if they are not achieved, the region will compensate the federal budget for the costs. “The expansion of the national project will allow increasing the volume of output and saturating the market. It will be possible to include enterprises of the same production chain in order to increase labor productivity at all stages of the creation of the final product,” Andrey Belousov said.
The need to change the selection criteria for the national project at the beginning of the year was voiced by the Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko, who heads the subcommittee of the State Council of the Russian Federation on labor productivity. “We see a real economic effect for the enterprises of the Leningrad Region implementing the national project, therefore, from the very beginning, we advocated softening the selection criteria. We are already implementing the project at the expense of the regional budget at several of our large enterprises that do not meet the criteria. The new special procedure allows the regions to make their own choices - this is important, since the specifics are different for everyone, and only locally know which industry or city-forming enterprise requires additional support for further development,” commented Alexander Drozdenko, Governor of the Leningrad Region.
Recall that the national project "Labor Productivity" helps enterprises multiply the volume of output. Experts help companies implement lean manufacturing, improve management, logistics and product sales. 51 enterprises of the Leningrad region have already joined the national project.
