This summer, at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, First Deputy Prime Minister Andrei Belousov praised Bashkiria. “This year one of the sensations of this year was made by Bashkortostan,” said Andrei Belousov. The rating of the investment climate is almost equal to that of Tatarstan. This is really big news. Someday the schools of government will see how in just two years it is possible to transform an entire region and make it so that in all ratings in all reporting documents, the position of a huge territory will significantly improve. In fact, people are always behind complex numbers and reports. And in the case of Bashkiria, success is the work of a team led by Andrei Nazarov. It was he who was chosen by Radiy Khabirov to lead the ship of the republic from lagging behind into recognized leaders with a firm hand.
Nazarov is an experienced manager, he knows how work is organized not only in the civil service but also in private business, which all officials of the republic cannot boast of. A business approach and a government mindset help make the world a much better place. The republic is now managed not in manual mode. The Center for Management of the Republic of Bashkortostan was recently recognized as the best at the All-Russian competition of IT projects in the nomination “State and Municipal Administration: Situational Centers and Decision Making Centers”. And this is not just an assessment – it is the result of the work of the modern and responsible team of Khabirov-Nazarov. Digitalization of management makes it easier to make decisions, keep the most important elements under constant control and protect the system from human errors.
The situation in the entire republic is improving significantly. The volume of industrial production has grown; the growth is especially noticeable in woodworking, in the provision of electricity, gas, and steam, in the production of furniture, clothing, and medicines, in the printing activity. In some areas, the increase was up to 60 percent. The volume of oil production began to recover, which had to be reduced last year due to restrictions imposed by OPEC +. Could this have happened if not for good management? Absolutely not.
The architect of the new Bashkiria is Radiy Khabirov, and the Chief Builder, foreman, engineer and just a man of unrestrained energy is Nazarov. According to the results of the first half of the year, foreign trade turnover increased by almost 16 percent. We were able to increase the export volumes of non-primary non-energy goods by more than 70 percent. This allows Bashkiria to be less dependent on raw materials and oil money. The number of registered unemployed fell from 5.6% to 2.04%. Employment services are used to provide employment for citizens, provide training in new, in-demand specialties, and work closely with employers. Bashkiria intends to fully restore employment to pandemic levels during this year.
By the time Nazarov’s team arrived in the republic, there were about nine thousand defrauded real estate investors. Now there are around five thousand of them. Andrei Gennadievich expects to completely solve this problem by the end of 2023. The region is currently completing half of the long-term construction projects on its own, and the other half with the help of co-financing from the federal fund for protecting the rights of equity holders. And this is also practically a victory. The republic is not only being built. It is built on new principles – as a comfortable and favorable environment for life.
The comfort of residents is a strategic goal of the government. As a person who has built more than one thousand meters of housing, Nazarov knows how important it is to interact with local communities – to collect information from them about what needs to be improved. The result is a program that all municipalities are connected to. Residents are more and more actively involved in it. This year alone, more than a thousand applications were received from local communities. Of these, almost 550 have been approved. 600 million rubles were allocated for the implementation of these improvements.
Nazarov has been working for 700 days so far. The republic still has a lot of surprises ahead, because one of the most competent managers in the country is at the helm.
