Due to advantageous geographical location, effective investment legislation, developed transport-and-logistic infrastructure and highly qualified workforce the Nizhny Novgorod Region diversifies gradually its economy.

The government of the Nizhny Novgorod Region always treats responsibly the interaction with investors no matter in which area they undertake an activity. Thanks to this, the volume of investments in primary industry of the region grows.

To illustrate the broad investment opportunities of the Nizhny Novgorod Region graphically we created the investment portal www.nn-invest.com

There could be found the most relevant information about the current investment legislation and the advantages of investing in the region, about planned and implemented investment projects in the Nizhny Novgorod Region, about the incentives for investments and investment projects and the order of applying for them. Furthermore, for the comfortable use of the portal it was an interactive step-by-step instruction that should ease significantly for investors the process of passing through all the stages of project implementation started off.

The portal now operates in seven languages: Russian, English, French, German, Italian, Chinese and Japanese.

Besides, it was created a bilingual interactive investment map – www.invest-map-nnov.com. It presents in a very detailed way the data about investment fields, infrastructure and investment projects that according to municipalities are required co-investing.

Today the map and the portal are integrated into the unified entire system that sets forth investment situation in the region.

We are interested in cooperation as we are convinced that both the region and the investor profit from it with resolving not only economic but also social issues.

You are welcome!
