Dear friends!

Kamchatka is a truly unique territory, one of the few places in the world with picturesque scenery and pristine wilderness. The special image of Kamchatka is formed by incredible landscapes, volcanoes, geysers, thermal and mineral sources, glaciers, and snow-covered slopes.

I would like to accentuate that the development of the economy and attraction of investments in the region are the most important areas of focus in this region's policy. We are always open to the possibility of cooperation and ready to assist in realization of all initiatives, ranging from creating favorable conditions for business to joint maintenance of investment projects.

Dear friends, hopefully, this investment portal will inspire you towards new beginnings and trigger new points of growth in economy of the region. I guarantee full support to all the business initiatives in the region, and I assure you the government of Kamchatka will become a reliable partner.

The Kamchatka territory has enormous investment potential. Due to huge deposits of water resources, the region is listed as the main destination for the fishing industry; enormous deposits of minerals serve as a basis for many industries. Distinctive features of this region have created fine opportunities for the development of many kinds of tourism.
