The Voronezh Region is a region with high resource, industrial, scientific, and technical potential. All these factors help create a favorable investment climate for the development of any business. In the past three years, the Voronezh Region has occupied a leading position in terms of investment growth not only in the Central Federal District, but also in the country as a whole. High investment growth rates were achieved through the implementation of major investment projects in the region with regional state support.
The main tool of investment policy is the Program for Socio-economic Development of the Voronezh Region. Since 2009 more than 55 productions were set up in the region through this program.
Priority initiatives aimed at creating favorable investment climate are the following: the implementation of the Standard of the Executive Authorities of the Voronezh Region to ensure a favorable investment climate in the region, formation and development of investment platforms, a reduction of individual procedures, and optimization of the process of granting permits and approvals for the implementation of investment projects.
I am confident that the regional government will make its best effort to ensure high growth rates of investment.
