Dear partners,

Please let me present you a basis for establishing investment projects in Astrakhan region.

The investment attractiveness of our region is determined by a variety of natural resources and advantageous geographical location.
Astrakhan region is considered to be a connecting link between such international transport routes as “North-South” and “West-East”, which attributes to the development of Astrakhan as a transport center.

Abundance of rich hydrocarbon resources and various mineral deposits in the region and on the adjoining shelf of the Caspian conduces to the growth of not only mining and processing, but also the infrastructure business itself. The necessity in drilling rigs maintenance, servicing of barges and navy ship contributes to the development of shipbuilding and dock repair.

The region has a unique tourist potential, creating the demand for recreational zones, objects of trade and rendering service.

In our region you would find all the necessary conditions for highly effective agriculture: fertile land is used to grow such high-quality products as tomatoes. Moreover, Astrakhan watermelons are our famous brand. We shall give our utmost support for the establishment of annual vegetables production and processing.

The government place special emphasis on the development of rural municipalities and realization of investment projects by them.

The high investment rating of our region is due to the existence of necessary legal framework and information base for creation and development of business.

Dear partners, I am inviting you for business cooperation. You can surely rely on the support of the Astrakhan Government in the projects' realization.
