Banks Will Help Start A Business

Last week 'Sobinbank' issued its first loan to start a business – entrepreneurs have received from the Bank of 5 million rubles for opening a beauty salon 'Person' for the franchise. 'Credit for biznesa.ru' asked the bankers to assess the role this event for the development of bank lending to small businesses in general. Dmitry Melnikov, head of the Directorate of Client Management Small Business Bank URALSIB I do not think that this event will become a kind of impetus for the Mass lending start-up in a small business, all banks that are serious and not declaratively engaged in lending to small businesses – are universal, rather than investment. It is unlikely that they will start handing out en masse credits for opening his business – a strategy not the same. Another thing is that some transactions will take place in the framework of special programs adopted by banks. Most often, these transactions will be ad hoc, as far as possible be conducted in partnership with the parastatal Assistance Fund lending to small businesses, either through established banks themselves venture funds – especially for lending to start-up high-tech or manufacturing goods and services with high added value, as well as in areas with below-average level of competition. By the way, and the state nasozdavav funds to support small businesses, not too actively sponsors the kind of clients. Perhaps the only exception – a venture fund created by the Department of Small Business of the Moscow Government and AFK 'system'.

In the future, the ruble should strive to rise in price, but this should happen radical restructuring of the economy Russia, it must be completely re-engineered to create high-tech. 23.6 rubles per $ 1 – a course that we saw in the summer of 2008, was the limit. Further appreciation of the domestic currency simply would have led to closure of many Russian enterprises. At 17 rubles to the dollar before the crisis the Russian economy could not exist. By the way, from the January index implies that the euro is overvalued against the dollar: the euro area, Big Mac worth 24% more expensive.

In South Africa, Big Mac Malaysian expensive just seven cents – $ 1.66. Still remains undervalued currency of Hong Kong – 52%. The biggest drawback to “Big Mac index” in that it reflects the value of national currencies still not exactly, because not take into account that different countries have very different consumption patterns. In addition to its famous Big Mac International Corporation McDonald’s is notorious for conducting a thorough investigation investment climate in the city and region, where it plans to open a restaurant. Therefore, the decision to open a restaurant “McDonald’s” – a kind of international recognition of the economic and investment successes such territory. An example is the Tver Oblast city favorably situated between two Russian capitals, with a population of about 500tysyach people (with a smaller population of the city attractive to McDonald’s very rare) a McDonald’s does not have (high rent and taxes, low purchasing power, etc.). Regional administration and city say anywhere on the investment attractiveness of the city and region, but This appeal is only in words.

McDonald’s in Tver, yet only one intention. Administration of Pskov region Pskov with a small (200,000 people) made a valiant effort, to interest the McDonald’s, but the project has not yet received. Even a whole country such as Ukraine, for several years did not meet the criteria of McDonald’s. International Corporation McDonald’s long doubted stability of the economic situation in Ukraine, and only in 1995 concluded that the favorable conditions prevailing in the country for its activities only if there were Ukrainian company McDonald’s with a network of 85 restaurants.
