On economic well-being and current measures to support small businesses in agriculture in the Kaliningrad region



Small forms of management in the agricultural system of the Kaliningrad region contin­ue to be an important structural element. At the same time, for the rural area of the region, they perform a more complex role, ensuring, among other things, an increase in the quality of life of the rural population. The current geopolitical and geo-economic conditions in which the Kaliningrad region operates have required strengthening and differentiation of measures and forms of state support for such enterprises. The region has a large-scale program to support farmers, including both financial and non-financial instruments. At the same time, it is nec­essary to assess not only support measures, but also the economic well-being of local agricul­tural entrepreneurs in a dynamically changing economic environment. With the help of ex­pert interviews with local entrepreneurs, key problems faced by local producers were identi­fied and certain practical tools were proposed that can provide a solution to some of these problems. One of the main conclusions of this study is the assurance that despite the change in external conditions that have negatively affected the conditions of operation, small busi­nesses in the Kaliningrad region continue to work and are actively developing, thereby providing conditions for the development of rural areas of the Kaliningrad region.
