Yakutia has unique investment opportunities related to the presence of abundant natural resources, a stable social and demographic situation, a high level of education, an economically active population, and a strong economic position in the Far Eastern Federal District.
Our republic is one of the first Russian regions in the Far East developing and approving a long-term strategic document - "The Scheme of Integrated Development of the Productive Forces, Transport and Energy in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) until 2020".
We have created "Investment Promotion Agency of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) to Represent the Republic in the Russian and International Markets". Investors can address the Agency with any questions related to investment activity within the country - from the provision of information for the preparation of business plans to assist after projects are implemented.
In order to simplify interaction with government agencies; ensure the availability of public and municipal services; and reduce the time of providing these services, we have created a network of multipurpose centers in the territory of republic.
In conclusion, I would like to emphasize again that the increase in investment attractiveness of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) was, is, and will be the top priority of my economic policy. We are ready for open and productive cooperation in our unique region and will do our best to create favorable conditions for business development.
