“Moscow reflects the business investment appeal of the whole country. Through the crisis years, we've seen no decline in fixed investments, and for the last three years we've witnessed growth in export operations and budget revenues,” said Moscow Mayor Sergei Sobyanin in his remarks on the results of the ranking.
According to him, the doubling down of SME's share in public contracts together with the explosive growth of technology parks were the key contributors to the growth of Moscow's investment appeal.
2016 and 2017 were marked by significant innovations in construction pertaining to the development of industrial areas.
“The Moscow business is strong and ready for all challenges that may come,” noted Sobyanin.
The National Ranking of Investment Climate assesses the efforts of regional authorities in Russia to create favorable conditions for business development. The results of the ranking drive competition for investments at the regional level. The research has been carried out since 2014. Currently, all 85 regions of Russia participate in the ranking.
