Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

The Republic of Tyva is one of the most attractive and distinctive regions of Russia.

Its unique geopolitical position, rich forest and water resources; substantial mineral resources; a variety of natural and recreational opportunities; and high scientific, labor, and cultural potential of Tyva allow to occupy a special place in terms of investment attractiveness of the European and Siberian regions of Russia.

The basis for attracting large investment in Tyva and development of foreign economic and interregional connections is through projects related to the development of the deposits of coal, non-ferrous, rare metals, and other minerals. Good prospects and projects for forest products, processing of agricultural products, production of building materials, pristine nature, and unique cultural and historical sites offer excellent opportunities for the development of the tourism industry.

The tremendous economic benefits that can be achieved by implementing projects in Tyva, are able to compensate for any investment risks. Ensuring the protection of property and investment laws, the stability of power, its constructive dialogue with the representatives of big business, socially responsible and active people , a willingness to mutually-beneficial cooperation - these all create success and guarantee the implementation of all projects and initiatives.

We are open to all who come to us with good thoughts and intentions.
