Welcoming address by the Governor of the Samara Region

Welcoming address by the Governor of the Samara Region In the recent years, the investment landscape of the Samara Region has changed dramatically, and a lot of work has been done to improve the business environment in our region.

A large-scale reform of investment legislation was launched, which made it possible to form a multi-channel system of state support for investments in the Samara Region. Modern legal norms have been included in our legal reality, allowing us to implement the most complex investment projects, such as investment memorandums, strategic investment projects, the public-private partnership mechanism, government guarantees, and investment tax incentives. We have expanded the list of categories of investors receiving land plots to be rented for the investment projects without bidding. We have created the institution for state supervision of investment projects. In addition to expanding opportunities for lending investments, mechanisms have been created in the region that help attract investors and develop businesses. These are the priority development territories, a special economic zone, a network of industrial parks, a high technology park. The most important management innovation was the decision to single out sectors with the highest priority for the economy and introduce project management methods. 

The Samara region has been and remains a multilaterally developing and prosperous region, favorable for investment projects. We have come a long way, but on the long-term development agenda we have even more ambitious goals. And we are sure that we can achieve them!
