Dear current and retired employees of trade enterprises of the Republic of Tatarstan!

On behalf of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Tatarstan and on my personal behalf, I congratulate you on your professional holiday, the Salesperson Day!

Today, more than 17,000 retail trade outlets of various formats operate in the consumer market of Tatarstan. The republic is one of the leading regions in terms of retail trade turnover.

It is impossible to imagine the life of a modern person without trade enterprises. We face your work every day. The mood of people, their way of life and living conditions largely depend on your professionalism, the quality of services provided, warmth and patience.

The profession of a salesperson is far from easy, as it might seem at first glance. It requires knowledge and competence, responsibility and dedication, initiative and even creativity. But most importantly, it requires the ability to work with people: to be patient and benevolent, attentive and kind.

I sincerely wish that your profession will always remain in demand and be well paid, your work will bring satisfaction and well-being, there will be peace and prosperity in the house, and your life will be filled with love and happiness. We wish you successful work for the benefit of society and your family.
