On December 18 Ufa expects the first Bashkortostan Calls! Investment Forum participated by over 10 investors of the Forbes list, Andrey Nazarov, Vice President of the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan says.
The task of the Forum is to “compare notes” with both acting and potential investors of the Republic at the end of the year. We invited about 500 participants and plan about 300 big companies to visit the event. We assume 14 Forbes listed guests having confirmed their participation, Nazarov mentioned at the meeting of the Government of the region.
Nazarov says, Radiy Khabirov, the Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, will personally meet 10 large investors visiting Ufa within the Forum. It is planned to conduct Bashkortostan Calls! Investment Forum annually and make a tradition out of it.
We are looking for ways to cooperate with investors. I hope Bashkortostan Calls! Investment Forum will be useful for us in this term. We spend much time and effort on working with investors, and positive results are self-explanatory. We keep growing by 15 percent. Yet, let us see what the year will be finished with. Though we are going the right way, it is not enough. I see the potential, Radiy Khabirov told.
Bashinform reports the growth of investments in the republic economy to be 15% in 2019. It was also mentioned by Radiy Khabirov, the Head of the Republic of Bashkortostan, in his Message to the State Assembly of the republic.
This is for the first time. We used to have this key growth at zero, Radiy Khabirov said. We have learnt to work with federal ministries and corporations, managed to establish three more territories of advanced development. Now we are heading to creation of Alga special economic zone that will surely boost the chain Sterlitamak – Ishimbay – Salavat and launch modern production facilities there.
The Ministry of Economic Development Press Service stated strategic investors of the country to become key speakers of Bashkortostan Calls! Investment Forum. They will share their experience and suggest ways of further development of the region.
The program of the 2019 Forum will hold Bashkortostan Calls! Presentation of the republic, a plenary session dedicated to the Republic of Bashkortostan as a territory of profitable investments and various discussion sections.
In 2019 the system of communication between investors and region authorities changed. Great efforts of overall government are aimed at improving investment and business climate, preparing convenient infrastructure for areas with a special economic status (SEZ, TASED, industrial parks), correcting legislation in the republic in terms of simplification of investment projects implementations procedures, Rustam Muratov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic of Bashkortostan, Minister of Economic Development and Investment Policy of the Republic of Bashkortostan told. The Forum would sum up on the investment year in Bashkortostan, allow to get feedback, discuss the sufficiency of the taken measures and set targets for the next year.
Above that, the Forum will hold the first meeting of the Alga, Bashkiria! Active Investors Club.
