Preferential Regimes for Investors: Current Progress and New Challenges
4 September 2019

Investors have come to trust advanced special economic zones (ASEZs) and the Free Port of Vladivostok (FPV) over the last five years: more than 1,700 residents are implementing projects valued at roughly USD 60 billion. Such projects include both megaprojects and small businesses. A total of 230 projects have already been implemented with investment of more than USD 6 billion and the creation of over 25,000 jobs. Competition for investors is intensifying in the Asia-Pacific region. The preferential regimes that have been created in the Far East must keep pace with the changing needs of business in order to ensure the necessary level of economic growth in the macro-region and the country as a whole. What can be done to develop the potential of preferential regimes, enhance their competitiveness, and improve their investment appeal for business? What additional measures should the Russian government take to make the Far East an attractive place for Russian and foreign investors, and what role should the regional authorities play?
