Today, both at the federal level and at the level of the subjects, a lot of work is being done related to the application of new development mechanisms: ASEZ, Far Eastern Hectare, Free Port of Vladivostok.

Vasiliy Aleksandrovich Orlov
The governor of the Amur Region
The territories of advanced development are new jobs, the growth of the gross regional product, a significant increase in taxes at the end of the grace periods of taxation. Another positive “option” of ASEZ is the multiplier effect: for anchor investors comes the accompanying business. For example, in the ASEZ ”Svobodny”, where the Amur gas processing plant is being built, auxiliary production facilities are already being created: enterprises producing metal structures, consumables, construction materials. The infrastructure necessary for production – roads, power lines, new residential areas are being built. In addition, the municipalities, thanks to the ASEZ, have the opportunity to improve the state of the social infrastructure. Schools, kindergartens, cultural objects are being reconstructed, and physical culture and recreation complexes are being built

Advantages:

  • Border position of the region
    Part of the Amur Region is the state border of the Russian Federation with the Chinese People's Republic
  • Nigh mineral potential
