What are we doing to improve our investment climate? We created an agency aimed at attracting investment. The Regional Investment Standard, created by the Agency for Strategic Initiatives, has passed this procedure. A council for public profile expert advice has been created; moreover, a regional Ombudsman is now working to protect the rights of entrepreneurs.

The removal of administrative barriers is our main objective. Today, we have created a council for the improvement of investment climate, which I personally head. Headed by the governor, federal bodies, such as territorial administrations; regional bodies; and municipal managements, i.e. bodies which give any permit to open a business, are organized.  Thus, the investor can solve the existing issues in one place. Naturally, based on current legislation, this measure has shown its effectiveness in many Russian regions.

We would be happy to see you in the Primorsky Territory.
