Astrakhan Region is the only region connecting the territory of the Russian Federation through a network of waterways and overland routes to the Middle East, Central Asia, and Asia.
The geographical location in the Volga River Delta, at the crossroads of the North-South and West-East international transport corridors determines the key role in shaping and implementing policy in the Caspian Region, including the development of unique mineral and biological resources, environmental protection, transport capacity, interregional cooperation, and security.
One of the drivers of the Astrakhan Region's economy in the coming years will be the implementation of the Lotos Special Economic Zone project that has been formed into a Caspian cluster as part of the development of international transport corridors.
The main goal of forming the cluster is to increase the level of socio-economic development of the region through the creation of high-tech industries with high added value.
The implementation of this large-scale project is also linked to the development of the region's petrochemical cluster.
The exhibition will showcase the realization of the Astrakhan region’s potential.
Belgorod Region – A Place of New Opportunities is the slogan for the region’s stand at the exhibition.
It embodies the idea that Belgorod Region offers a wealth of opportunities, both for businesses, and for people. It is a place where people want to live, work, and unwind.
Visitors will have the chance to learn key information about the region, as well as about its economic growth, contribution to national projects, social development, human capital, and successful initiatives. All this will be presented using AR technology.
Investors will also benefit from an interactive map of the region displaying its top 10 investment sites and industrial parks, as well as the Gubkin advanced special economic zone, all while detailing the infrastructure which has been put in place. This will help investors choose a site and learn more about its infrastructure, and about available forms of support.
The stand will also feature a “space lilac”, a unique project by Innovative Solutions in Agriculture – a world-class science and education centre. The launch of micropropagation on an automated space flight will help in efforts to study the behaviour of plants from Belgorod State University, home to the largest lilac nursery in Russia.
At the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum the regions of the Siberian Federal District, members of the Siberian Accord (an Interregional Association of Economic Cooperation between the Constituent Territories of the Russian Federation) are once again united under the common brand: Greater Siberia.
This is not accidental: the regions of the Siberian Federal District have significant natural, industrial, human, and scientific potential.
Under current circumstances where business processes recalibrate to the East, Siberia’s geographical position is an unconditional advantage.
It is important for our country to fulfil these opportunities: to direct financial flows to the Greater Siberia to create new import-substituting production facilities, to promote the expansion of entrepreneurial initiative and the formation of advanced production competencies. All this should contribute to achieving the main goal: ensuring a high quality of life for Russians.
The Big Siberia portfolio includes 232 investment projects worth a total of RUB 5.5 trillion, which will create 224,000 high-tech and well-paid jobs.
They cover more than 20 economic spheres and envisage the strengthening of the country's food security, accelerated development of the national transport and logistics system towards the East, the improvement of critical infrastructure, as well as the creation of import-substituting new generation production facilities.
The Krasnoyarsk Region is one of Siberia's richest regions. Its natural reserves and strong and competitive industrial potential are drivers of its rapid economic growth and the prerequisites for its high investment appeal. The Krasnoyarsk Region is part of Yenisey Siberia, which comprises three regions located on the banks of the Yenisey River: the Krasnoyarsk Region, the Republic of Khakassia, and the Tyva Republic. Yenisey Siberia is home to a unique countrywide integrated investment project that combines the resource, economic, and infrastructure potential of the regions. The Yenisey Siberia comprehensive investment project consists of 32 projects with a total investment value of over RUB 1.9 trillion. More than 60 companies – global industrial market leaders – are involved in the investment projects.
The comprehensive investment project is supported by the Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation, a regional development institution of the Krasnoyarsk Region, the Republic of Khakassia, and the Tyva Republic. The Development Corporation's tasks also include attracting new investment projects to the regions, creating mechanisms for cooperation between large investors and representatives of small and medium-sized businesses and academic institutions, conducting large-scale business projects, and promoting the Yenisey Siberia territorial brand at the federal and international levels.
The Krasnoyarsk Region, the Republic of Khakassia, and the Tuva Republic have all the necessary resources and capabilities to develop effective economic cooperation with foreign countries.
