In the framework of St. Petersburg International Economic Forum Khabarovsk Krai Governor Vyacheslav Shport took part in the panel session: Injecting Dynamism in the Russian Far East Economy.
Investors with projects in the Russian Far East, State Duma deputies, federal officials, heads of Russian and Chinese regions discussed the effectiveness of new business incentives in the Russian Far East.
According to Vyacheslav Shport new formats of special economic zones like Territories of Advanced Development provide a transparent and guaranteed set of preferences for investors.
The Governor gave an example of two success stories with Japanese investors in Khabarovsk Krai: a greenhouse project of JGC Evergreen and airport project with a pool of Japanese investors. The projects were success mostly due to existing investor incentives available in Khabarovsk Krai. Governor Shport also mentioned that thanks to the previous investor track a number of projects with Chinese investors are in the pipeline and are to take off in the nearest future.
