The government of Amur region has prepared a package of business incentives to support investment activity. Companies, that implement investment projects in Amur region, receive tax benefits. Rate of income tax will be zero for the first five years after the start of new production and ten percent for the next five years.

We would also continue to provide federal government guarantees and refund a portion of investment costs by subsidies.

Amur region will become a part of the Far Eastern network of areas designated for prioritized development with special conditions provided to non-extractive industries, including those targeted at export.

In addition, we continue to reduce administrative barriers — for example by simplifying procedures of obtaining construction permits and connection to the power grid.

We look forward to seeing you in our region!
