Dear Partners,

Nowadays, we actively attract private investors, prepare platforms, and negotiate conditions of concession. The Omsk Region has great potential to successfully carry out projects with private investors; so we, as the regional administration, are eager to work in that direction.

Moreover, a legal framework supporting investors has been already implemented. This groundbreaking system provides a great opportunity not only not only to develop existing business, but also to create new ones. Obviously this system cannot be static; its evolution has to be constant, but predictable.

The instruments for developing investment activity are put in place — e.g. the Omsk Region Development Corporation. Fifty investment platforms with developed engineering and transport infrustructure are already being created on regional and municipal lands.

Local governments are also responsible for the enhancement of business climate. Only this model would permit us to create a friendly investment environment that would not be just a promise, but a real highlight of the Omsk Region.
