The Krasnoyarsk Territory is one of the most powerful and economically-developed regions in Russia. There are few countries in the world which could be compared to this territory in size, volume, and variety of natural resources.

The largest metallurgical, energy, engineering, and woodwork enterprises work for the region. For five years already the agrarian industry has had the highest productivity of grain in the Siberian Federal District. The Krasnoyarsk Territory is in the crossing of transcontinental transport ways: the shortest transport routes cross our region from Europe to South East Asia and to North America. 

Moreover, the economic image of the region and the potential of its development are distinguished by high-technology industries ― space and nuclear, innovative small businesses, scientific institutions and, specifically, large scale educational centers.

However, the industrial development of the Territory has just begun. We need to develop new deposits; build new factories and industrial plants for deep processing of raw materials; develop the machine building industry; introduce innovative technologies practically to all branches of manufacture, life-support systems, and everyday life of our population.

For this reason a diversified set of tools for reliable investors' support is employed in our region. It is worth mentioning that our region is the first to employ the mechanism of state-private partnership for the implementation of the large-size project ― “Integrated Development of the Nizhnee Priangarye”. I am absolutely sure that there will be many modern projects of different scales implemented in the region. This is because the Krasnoyarsk Territory is the place where any company and any person with initiative can put his/her ideas into life.
