More than 21 percent of contracts from the total volume of purchases over the past 10 years were concluded with representatives of small and medium-sized businesses, their amount amounted to 1.7 trillion rubles. For 11 months of this year, Moscow customers have concluded 264 thousand transactions with small businesses worth 306 billion rubles, ”said Ivan Shcherbakov.
