«Womens entrepreneurship is a specific domain. In general,
women entrepreneurs represent the SME segment, and this is usually the
production of custom-made goods and services. Today, womens entrepreneurship
is essential to the world. Of course, the state must support them. After all,
these are new jobs, development of social services, and additional
opportunities for the local budget. However, women also represent big business.
At times, business projects implemented by Russian women are worthy of
admiration. Here it would be appropriate to talk about export opportunities.
The REC sets up the most favourable conditions, developing new programs,
initiatives and special systems for subsidising the costs for exporting
entrepreneurs. Women exporters create a special export-focused realm in
Russia,» said Vera Podguzova, managing director for external communications at
the REC Group.
