Dear Partners!

The Republic of Mordovia is above all considered as a territory of innovations. The region is developing due to the implementation of science-intensive technologies. In the last five years, the Republic of Mordovia has risen by 55 points in the rating of innovative development. For the last decade the volume of the Republic’s gross regional product increased twofold. Moreover, we will double our GRP in the forthcoming five years.

The Republic of Mordovia is actively participating in almost all federal development programs ― in part due to federal loans. By executing high-technology industrial projects and implementing modern agricultural technologies, the republic increases its own revenues and creates a solid foundation for further competitive development of its economy.
