Such a statement was made by the Prime Minister of the Opposition Government, Borys Kolesnikov, during a meeting with representatives of small business in Kostiantynivka (Donetsk Oblast).
He stressed that there was no need to “reinvent the wheel” in helping domestic small businesses. It is necessary to use the Eastern European experience. “What kind of help is there for small businesses?” First, interest on loans is written off, and second, infrastructure is being built: water, gas, and electricity are supplied. How does this happen in our country? There is no such help, so it will also be necessary to fulfill the technical conditions, after which the store will cost as a factory,” the opposition Prime Minister said.
In addition, Borys Kolesnikov believes that glass production should be a foundation for Kostiantynivka, which will allow the city to be reborn for a few years. The city has all the prerequisites for this, because in Soviet times, Kostiantynivka was considered the glass capital of the entire Soviet Union.
“It is necessary to hold a business seminar in Kostiantynivka and Druzhkivka, to determine our competitive advantages. They are certainly in the food and light industries. The demand in these industries is huge. Of course, glass production is the foundation. It is slowly being reborn. I think that by making preferential loans for glass factories, the city will revive for two or three years,” the Prime Minister of the Opposition Government emphasized.
