Dear Partners!

Our region is one of the most industrialized and attractive regions in north-west Russia. At the heart of this appeal are the richest natural resources of the Kola peninsula surrounded by the sea, the Western Arctic Shelf wealth, and the opportunities of transit through the Northern Sea Route.

The main tasks of the regional government in terms of attracting investment are the following: to ensure the implementation of major projects that increase employment,. tp increase the flow of tax revenues to the budget of the region, to increase the share of industries with high added value, to stimulate the development of small and medium-sized businesses and ultimately, to improve the level of income and quality of life for Northerners.

After all, our main wealth is people -- persistent, active, and in love with the Kola Polar Region!
