Dear Investors!

Today an efficient investment policy is enacted in our region by the legislative framework.

Investment projects, including the construction of new enterprises and the reconstruction of existing production facilities, are implemented regularly.

There is a large number of companies from other regions of Russia and abroad operating in Kursk. These companies signed more than 60 cooperation agreements, defining parameters of interaction, mutual obligations and responsibilities of the parties. We work in constant dialogue, seeking to resolve problems arising from companies and facilitating the implementation of projects undertaken by them in the Kursk region.

The Kursk Region is open for cooperation and welcomes the expansion of the circle of investors.
