— The Russian Far East has always been perceived by residents of the Western part of Russia as something mysterious, and today we have a chance to have a closer look at it. This region is really unusual, especially from the point of view of its natural resources and economy. Basically all industries are presented there and each of them is attractive for investors, — President of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of the Russian Federation, Sergei Katyrin.
Yuri Chaika, the First Deputy Chairman of Khabarovsk Krai Government for Investment and Priority Projects, pointed out in his presentation that the region is the 4th largest entity in the Russian Federation. The region is crossed by one of the longest rivers in the world — the Amur. Khabarovsk Krai has a direct access to the sea and a long border with China, which creates unique opportunities for transport infrastructure. The region has vast forest and mineral resources and a large number of virgin territories. The exports in 2016 were $1,54 billion. The legal system, a set of financial and non-financial incentives, as well as investor support allow to effectively use the existing regional economic and resource potential.
After the presentation Khabarovsk Krai representatives were answering a big number of questions from mass-media and business community.
