During the METRO Expo trade fair, VEB.RF, RSMB Corporation, SME Bank, DOM.RF and METRO Cash & Carry signed a cooperation agreement. The parties agreed to encourage SME development and provide support for individual entrepreneurship, such as support for the expansion of a corner shop chain and mobile food businesses.

The parties to the agreement will lend comprehensive support, from the search for shopping premises to financial, guarantee and leasing support for small businesses, agricultural cooperatives and farmers to the expansion of marketing channels through the sale of their products, including as part of the Bean franchise programme.

The agreement was signed by VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov, RSMB Corporation’s General Director Alexander Braverman, DOM.RF’s CEO Alexander Plutnik, METRO Cash & Carry Russia’s General Director Jerry Calmis and SME Bank’s First Deputy Chairman of the Board Denis Ursulyak.

“The creation of a comfortable urban environment is not limited to the implementation of large-scale long-term projects. The agreement that we signed today is a good example of efficient cooperation between development institutions and businesses, where each is ready to offer support measures aimed at helping to grow the food retail chain. Our primary goal is to improve the quality of life,” VEB.RF’s Chairman Igor Shuvalov said.

DOM.RF will offer businesses comprehensive support in relation to commercial real estate and banking services, including providing information on real properties eligible for the programme, DOM.RF Bank’s services and DOM.RF’s direct assistance with project implementation.

“The development of small and medium-sized businesses is essential for creating a comfortable urban environment and infrastructure. The standard of integrated spatial development, which is being defined by DOM.RF, recommends allocating ground floors of residential buildings to small and medium-sized businesses so that people can use a variety of retail outlets and service centres in the neighbourhood,” DOM.RF’s CEO Alexander Plutnik commented.

“Providing businesses with new opportunities to fulfil their potential within the Russian SME segment is of great significance. It is critically important that the initiatives come from major market players with considerable potential and experience that can be shared with small businesses eager to promote cooperation. RSMB Corporation is willing to provide full-scale support for the participants of the METRO Cash & Carry project, including financial, information and other support; project participant selection; assistance to agricultural cooperatives and farmers in expanding their marketing channels,” RSMB Corporation’s General Director Alexander Braverman said.

SME Bank’s First Deputy Chairman of the Board Denis Ursulyak emphasized: “Small and medium-sized businesses help to form the urban environment and foster people’s well-being and comfort. It is extremely important to support this segment. Our agreement consolidates various financial and non-financial measures to support businesses and offers SMEs opportunities for growth. For us, as a bank supporting small and medium-sized enterprises, it is the primary objective and the principal goal.”

METRO Cash & Carry will give domestic entrepreneurs assistance in equipping their retail facilities and provide recommendations and expert assistance for private retailers, specifically under the Bean programme.
