Measures to support Russian companies, in particular, the mechanism specinvtehnica (Speke), you need to develop and to expand, according to the President of the Russian Union of Industrialists and entrepreneurs (RSPP) Alexander Shokhin.

«It is clear that support mechanisms need to be developed in part to simplify procedures and to increase transparency and to expand, for example, Speke», — said Shokhin in an interview with the Russian investment Forum in 2018, seen by RIA Novosti.

The growth of the industry, said Shokhin, will also promote the development of information infrastructure.

In this case, one of the key problems of the industry remained a shortage of personnel. According to Shokhin, more than 40% of the surveyed companies-members of RSPP considered in 2017 workforce shortage limits their activities. The activities of the companies also reduce low productivity, high level of depreciation of material and technical base, the high cost of credit and excessive regulatory pressure on business, says Shokhin.

«According to the survey of the RSPP on the state of the business climate in 2017 industrial companies are most concerned about rising prices, excessive regulatory burden on businesses, the lack of qualified personnel, the reduction in demand. These problems are closely interrelated and the factors constraining development of the industry in the medium term, including low productivity, high degree of moral and technical obsolescence of equipment, lack of share of highly qualified personnel, high cost loans,» — said Shokhin.

Now in Russia there are various institutions supporting the Russian industry. For example, the industrial development Fund loans to enterprises for co-financing at low rates. There are also subsidy programmes, the mechanism of guarantees and benefits within the framework of Speke.
