The Ryazan Region Development Corporation and the regional branch of the Bank of Russia launched a new digital service
On December 16, Deputy Chairman of the Regional Government Artem Nikitin held a working meeting. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Bank of Russia, the regional division of the regulator and the Ryazan Region Development Corporation. At the meeting, they also talked about the Investment Marketplace project.
It became the first practical step in the cooperation agreement, which was signed on that day by Vyacheslav Nesin, CEO of the Development Corporation, and Sergey Kuznetsov, manager of the Ryazan branch of the Bank of Russia.
The project was based on the appeals of potential investors. The service was placed on the Investment portal of the Ryazan region. At the first stage, six credit institutions with subdivisions in the Ryazan region joined the project. These are Promsvyazbank, Gazprombank, Sberbank, Prio-Vneshtorgbank, Russian Agricultural Bank, VTB Bank. In the future, the electronic platform will expand and change depending on the needs of market participants.
Artem Nikitin, Deputy Prime Minister of the Ryazan Region:
“I think that we really got a high-quality and useful product. In one click, the investor will be able to choose the best loan product from local banks. Usually, an investor’s communication with banks takes from 2 to 4 months. It is unacceptable. Now everything will change dramatically. This product is an indicator of the complete readiness of all structures to work as quickly as possible for a common goal – the development of the Ryazan region.”
Sergey Kuznetsov, Head of the Branch for the Ryazan Region of the Main Directorate of the Bank of Russia for the Central Federal District:
“Investors come to the Ryazan region, and now they are coming very well. When they work with one or two banks, they don’t see the full range of possibilities. Here, the investor sends his documents to the “one window”, and all banks on a competitive basis give their offers, from which the investor will be able to choose the best in terms of money and time.
Murat Kerefov, Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation:
“As the best practice, the Investment Marketplace project was also recognized at the level of the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation. At a meeting of the State Council commission in the direction of “Investments”, the development of Ryazan residents was noted as one of the best practices of the subjects that have introduced all elements of the regional investment standard this year. He said this in his speech.”
