As the Governor noted, the IT industry is promising and should be supported.

However, it is necessary to involve business in this process, possibly by granting preferences and benefits to residents who will enter there, - said the Governor and instructed the Department of Informatization and Communication of the Krasnodar Region to work on the issue.

The participants of the meeting have discussed the possibility of establishing the IT cluster in the regional capital. The area of the “Nemetskaya Derevnya” district, the plant of “ClAAS”, and the village of “Znamensky” were noted as possible areas for establishment.

The head of the region noted that the creation of the cluster is new opportunities for large business. In addition, it is important to provide the stable link in all settlements of the region - it is a fundamental condition for the development of rural areas, small and medium-sized enterprises in the provinces.
