This year alone, 12 companies have joined us with projects worth 70 billion rubles,” the Governor of the region Vladislav Shapsha said in his welcoming speech.

When addressing the participants of the event, Anatoly Artamonov noted: “We understand the risk you take when you decide to run a business in an unfamiliar region. The common endeavour of the municipal, regional and, of course, federal authorities was to ensure that our investors are comfortable and safe to locate in the Kaluga region, so that their business grows and develops.”

Vitaly Khotsenko, Department of Regional Industrial Policy and Project Management of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation, emphasized in his speech that the Kaluga Region was second in the Effectiveness of Industrial Policy Rating of the regions in 2020: “New mechanisms used by the federal center to support regional industrial policy will further help to be successful in supporting a favorable investment climate in the region.
