The Sverdlovsk Region is one of the most-developed Russian regions. Time after time it ends up among the leaders in terms of investment appeal.

The development of the Sverdlovsk Region, its translational motion of advance would be determined by innovation, investment, social responsibility, and concern for people.

We have an important task to accomplish: to make the region as comfortable for living and doing business as possible.

Only by providing favourable conditions can we assure that foreign companies will start projects and open their offices in this region.

Our aim is to become much more open, comprehensible, and predictable to our investors; and we are sure that this would enable a fruitful cooperation between investors, the business community and regional authorities.
