Over a period of five years, we have seen the establishment of 20 ASEZs [Advanced Special Economic Zones – ed.], the FPV [Free Port of Vladivostok – ed.] regime operates in five regions, with 1,773 residents implementing their projects, 236 of which have already been completed and launched. Our residents are expected to invest around RUB 3.2 trillion in the Far East, with RUB 44 billion already invested. We also expect to see the creation of 129,000 jobs, with around 30,000 already created. These figures show just how much our preferential regimes are in demand — Sergey Tyrtsev, First Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation for the Far East Development.
Today, the ASEZ in Amur Region is home to 23 projects. Around 1 trillion in investment has been announced, and more than 5,000 jobs will be created in the future. We see this endeavour as a huge contribution, one that provides excellent privileges to companies who come to us — Pyotr Pak, Deputy Prime Minister of Amur Region.
There is nothing else in existence like the ASEZs we have in Russia. We have taken a close look not only at Russia, but the world, and this package of benefits is absolutely unique. It puts us in a position whereby we can proudly take our place in the international arena — Vadim Medvedev, Managing Director of Investment Department, ESN Group .
