Dear Partners!

Man, order, and investments - these are the three "pillars" on which we are building the present and the future of the Trans-Urals. All further steps should be based on the formation of a favorable investment image of the region, and this means we should provide a comfortable environment for investors in each district and the city.

Searching for investors now is not only the task of the regional government - the amount of borrowed funds and their effective use is becoming one of the main criteria of the municipalities' actions.

That is why you can be sure that we welcome you to the Kurgan Region!
