So, if we compare the data at the end of 2021 and as of May 10, 2022, we can see that the total number of small and medium-sized businesses of all forms has increased by 5 thousand.

Currently, according to the Federal Tax Service, nearly 52,000 people work in registered businesses in Dagestan.

The experts we interviewed believe that such a jump was influenced by a sharp increase in the registration of the self-employed, as well as an increase in financial assistance to entrepreneurs during the crisis.
