The Orel Region is located in the center of the European part of Russia and is part of the Central Federal District.

The socio-economic situation of the region is largely determined by the all-Russian macroeconomic situation, while it remains quite stable.

The region has a well-developed transport infrastructure, the profitability of which is determined, first of all, by the relative proximity to the capital of Russia — Moscow. Thus, the most important transport highways of federal significance pass through the region and directly through the regional center — the city of Orel.

The dominant economic activities of the region are:

  • agriculture;
  • industrial production;
  • trade and public catering;
  • transportation and storage;
  • construction.

Factors of investment attractiveness of the region:

  • favorable transport and geographical location;
  • highly productive agriculture;
  • modern industry (the industrial sector is characterized by a high level of intersectoral and interregional cooperation, as well as a high level of available technological equipment, its own design base, and a developed geography of supplies);
  • the presence of non-traditional types of minerals in the region;
  • high tourist potential.
