Regions Are Connected To Support Of Significant National Crafts

 The President of Russia approved the amendments to the Federal Law "On Folk Art Crafts" No. 7-FZ with regard to empowering the constituent entities of the Russian Federation with the right to support the organizations of the NCP from the federal list.

The changes made allow the subjects of the Russian Federation to support the organizations of folk art crafts of the federal list, whose products are the visiting card of the regions of Russia and the country as a whole. At the moment, the federal list includes 79 organizations from 34 constituent entities of the Russian Federation, including the Gzhel Porcelain Factory, Zhostovo Fountain Art Factory, the Khokhloma Painting, the Dymkovo Toy, the Pavlovsky Posad Dressmaking Manufactory.

"Taking into account the significance of the activities of the subjects of the Russian Federation in the field of folk arts, the amendments will allow for an integrated approach in the development of folk arts. So, in 2016, the consolidated support of the industry amounted to more than 1 billion rubles, of which 15% falls on the share of regional budgets. We hope that the adoption of this bill will allow the regions to substantially increase the volume of this support. Together we will be able to form a steadily developing sector of the economy, contributing to the preservation of the traditions of the peoples of the Russian Federation, strengthening the positive image of Russia in the world and the development of cultural tourism, "commented the Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation Denis Manturov.

It should be emphasized that the draft amendments do not introduce a change in the division of powers between the federal and regional levels of government in support of folk arts and crafts, but broadens the range of tools for supporting arts and crafts organizations, mainly through small and medium-sized businesses.
