April 17). The number of realized places for a seasonal trade in Kazan grew by
4 times in 2 years: from 74 in 2014 to 305 today. Ivan Kuznetsov, the deputy
head of the Executive Committee for Economic Development, spoke about
organizing a seasonal trade in the capital of Tatarstan in 2017 at the
traditional staff meeting in the Kazan City Hall.
speaker said, each place for a seasonal trade was put up for auction at least
once. “For today, the Committee of the consumer market has conducted 41
auctions and put out 488 lots for bidding. According to their results, 305
points for seasonal sales were sold for a total of 27 million rubles, which is
10 million rubles more than last year. The auctions are still going on! I shall
remind that we sold 74 places for 3.5 million rubles at the beginning of the
way in 2014”, he said.
auctions of this season gave a phenomenal result. Trades for the right to place
a seasonal point for the implementation of ice cream on Bauman Street lasted
three days, and the starting price from 22 thousand rubles increased by 5.5
thousand times to almost 1 million 300 thousand rubles. And this is not an only
case”, he added.
Kuznetsov also noted that preparations for the trades and the auctions
themselves were held in advance in accordance with the instructions of Ilsur
Metshin, the Mayor of Kazan. “As a result, we achieved two main goals: illegal
traders had to buy from the auction the right to trade and work legally, and on
the other hand we increased revenues to the budget by providing participants
with open electronic bidding”, the speaker noted.
marked that the organization of a seasonal trade is a difficult job, coupled
with a large clearance of legal papers, but it was important to do it on time.
“It is important that all tender procedures and auctions are held on time. Any
day of delay for people who work in this business is a lost profit. A stitch in
time saves nine”, concluded the Mayor.
the principle of organizing a seasonal trade has undergone significant changes.
The scheme of the facilities was corrected: seats that fell into the guard zone
of the Kazan Arena stadium were excluded, as well as ones that received
comments from the services of the city and the population. At the same time,
new places and new profiles, reflecting business demand and consumer needs,
were included. As a result, the total number of seats was reduced to 628.
feature of this year was the discussion of the scheme with the business
community. Over 50 entrepreneurs took part in specially held roundtables, where
they were told in detail about innovations, explained the conditions for
participation in auctions, showed schemes for placing shopping facilities in
parks and squares, and presented options and schemes for connecting seasonal
facilities to electricity. “As a result of the meeting, all comments and
suggestions from the participants were taken into account, and at the same time
the need for strict observance of the improvement rules was pointed out”,
marked I. Kuznetsov.
head of the Executive Committee for Economic Development noted that the main
task for the next season is to bring the appearance of seasonal trade objects
to certain quality standards. He proposed extending the terms of the agreement
up to three years for those entrepreneurs who are ready to invest in the design
of their points, so that their investments can pay off. The Mayor of Kazan
agreed to consider the possibility of increasing the rent terms for those
entrepreneurs “who came for a long time with serious intentions”.
