Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
Let me welcome you on behalf of the Kostroma region!
On this site you can find information about the successful projects implemented in the territory of the Kostroma region, the terms and conditions of investment activity, and the industrial production and industrial policy provided in the region.
For the last decade the key factor that has determined the dynamic development of the economy of any region has been considered to be the attraction of investments. Investors are not indifferent to the economic and political situation in the region. Such factors as high costs, significant risks, and the absence of immediate results can disturb them. Therefore, our goal is to remove these obstacles and create favorable conditions for business. The balance between the interests of residents and entrepreneurs should be maintained. Moreover, an integrated approach in the development of the economic and social sphere is crucial.
Only meticulous daily work in this direction will help the region accomplish this goal.
We are interested in development of our partnership and are confident that this cooperation will not only be successful, but also mutually beneficial and productive.
We will be glad to see you in our hospitable Kostroma land. We value everyone!
