According to the deputy mayor for economic policy, Andrei Sharonov, the number of retail space in Moscow will be doubled.
At the moment, officials are approving nine schemes for placing retail facilities, ranging from hypermarkets, markets, fairs and ending with small retail. Now the city authorities are coordinating their work with representatives of retail chains.
According to Dmitry Golev, head of the development department of Welhome, the trade and services department has developed a program "Development of wholesale and retail trade, public catering and consumer services in the city of Moscow for 2012-2016." "The implementation of this project will take at least 5 years, since it requires coordination of efforts on the part of the authorities and commercial structures interested in placing in these shopping facilities," the specialist added.
