"Our new project "Supporting the operating business "Asyldar" began to operate in a pilot mode. We analyzed the foreign experience in this direction and dwelt on the positive experience of the SME Development Corporation of the Republic of Korea. As you know, Korea's SME brings the lion's share of the country's GDP. We also strive to ensure that our small and medium business is competitive and progressive. For this purpose, we have developed a project that will allow us to diagnose the "illnesses" of business, find the appropriate "treatment recipe" for them in the form of a roadmap for client development, form a plan, hold trainings and seminars and pick up the best enterprises abroad. All this will lead to an increase in production efficiency, a reduction in the cost of services or products, an improvement in the quality of services or goods, profitability and, ultimately, an increase in the competitiveness of the business, "said Gabit Lesbekov, Managing Director and Member of the Board of the "Damu" Fund.
