There were discussed measures for development of small and medium sized enterprises, increasing the effectiveness of state support for small sized enterprises, expansion of access for businessmen lending resources at the meeting. During the meeting there were also discussed the questions of staffing of the enterprise case, carrying out checks of small and medium sized enterprises by regulatory authorities.

Vladimir Putin emphasized that citizens don't hurry to create their own business: «People don't hurry to undertake creation of their own business. Only about 6% of the citizens are newcomer businessmen or owners of new business. Nowadays the youth prefers to work in civil service, in the bodies of local government and in large companies with the state participation». The head of the state declared that all necessary conditions for realization of businessmen’s potential have to be created by the government. «It is vital for development of the country and for all its regions in order that the Russian companies took a worthy place and in their own and international markets», - the President added.

Improvement of conditions of businessmen’s activity has to begin at the first stage of their work – opening of their own business. «The working group suggests to simplify conditions of an entrance to small sized business. I completely agree with it», - the President emphasized. «It won't be necessary to spend time and forces for collecting documents, it is enough to buy the patent and to get to work», – the head of the state noted.

Special attention was paid to questions of tax policy concerning small and medium sized enterprises. Speaking about it, Vladimir Putin urged the regional authorities to control growth of tax burden in business which is connected with new payments because of the introduction of cadastral cost for real estate and property real. At the same time the head of the state reminded that the operating tax conditions are recorded for the next four years. «I believe that regions have to work here reasonably, there shouldn't be sharp growth of tax burden in business, especially on production, occupying the big spaces», – Vladimir Putin emphasized.

Besides, the head of state urged the supervisory authorities to reduce number of checks in business subjects, and charged the Prosecutor-General’s Office to analyze validity of checks, especially unplanned, in 2014. «The businessman shouldn't live in continuous expectation of that it will suddenly appear someone with the next check, he shouldn't be afraid that any of his actions can be brought easily under some article», - the President of the Russian Federation declared.

The results of the meeting of the State Council were commented by the Governor Alexey Ostrovskiy: «The subject that has been lifted on the State Council is extremely important for the Smolensk region. There weren’t left many industrial enterprises, big state owned farms and collective farms in our region. First of all we should give support to people who are ready to take it upon themselves to open small or medium-sized enterprise.

The government and the civil servants have to create conditions for business, but not build constant obstacles. Checks, control actions – all of these only complicate businessmen’s life».

In the territory of the region in 2014 the sub-programme of subjects’ support of small and medium sized enterprises with attraction of financial resources of the federal budget is successfully realized. The total amount of the funds allocated for subjects’ support of small and medium business made more than 282 million rubles, including of the regional budget of 61 million rubles, of the federal budget of 221 million rubles.

It should be noted that the Smolensk region was among 20 regions to which the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation completely satisfied the submitted applications for allocation of federal funding.

Within the realization of the sub-programme 166 subjects of small and medium sized business were supported. The number of the satisfied demands grew by 47% in comparison with 2012. The general size of the subsidies provided to subjects of small and medium sized enterprises grew by 12,4% in comparison with 2013. It is remarkable that the geography of participants extended. So, if businessmen participated from 13 municipalities in 2013, in 2014 it would be from 20.

In 2015, as well as in the previous year, the sub-programme of subjects’ support of small and medium sized business will be focused on assistance in real sector of economy and directed on stimulation of subjects of small and medium sized enterprises to realization of investments.

The priority is a real support of subjects of small and medium business, the enterprises which are carrying out activity in the sphere of production, construction, tourism, agriculture, scientific and technical development in the field of natural and technical sciences.
