Szymon Jankiewicz took part in the round-table talk "How does the state support business and NPO in the field of supplementary education during the crisis?"

Moscow International Education Fair 2020

The pandemic directly reduced the demand for services in the supplementary education sector, and the economic crisis is leading to a reduction in the population's capacity to pay in the nearest future. Together, this creates risks not only for stability, but also for the preservation of the non-state sector in education, which in recent years has begun to play a significant role, providing variability and quality of services, up-front implementation of innovative products.

The participants of the event considered two basic scenarios for the development of the situation - systematic recovery, the return of the market to the pre-crisis level and "the revival of private education from the ashes." What is the state doing and what should it do to support the non-state sector? The following measures to support the sector were discussed: tax holidays and benefits, anti-crisis rental rates, simplified reporting, placement of government orders and much more. What mechanisms could be effective in the long term?
