Key Questions

How can I submit information if I am aware of projects that are not listed?

Should you be aware of projects which should be considered for this database, or wish to report any errors, please contact Natalia.Borisova@rdif.ru

Why am I not seeing a project which I know about?

Several reasons may be possible: The project has not yet been announced in the media, which is a prerequisite for INVEST IN RUSSIA database. The project that you know about does not qualify according to INVEST IN RUSSIA project selection criteria. Our processes involve several steps. The project file is published once the basic information is assembled through a process of research, qualification and verification.

What are INVEST IN RUSSIA DATABASE project qualification criteria?

The project must involve capital expenditures (building, machinery, equipment) upwards of $1M for most sectors, with the exception of retail, entertainment and hotels, for which the threshold is set at $20M. Shell buildings for future investments are not considered. The project must be publicly announced, with a credible schedule for realization. Research and development projects with no significant capital expenditures (i.e. below $1M) are not retained.

Why is the project value sometimes not available?

Several reasons may be possible: Capital investment value of some projects is confidential. Even when some value has been published by the media, it may happen that the investor is not willing to confirm the published figure. In these cases, E&B DATA makes a judgment on the credibility of the published value. If a doubt remains about the project value, the figure is not made available by INVEST IN RUSSIA database.

Are dollar values for project cost provided in current or constant dollars?

In current dollars.

Why is job creation sometimes not available?

Several reasons may be possible: Job creation is confidential. Job announcements may be premature (early phase of the project). Job creation is linked to the market conditions at the time of the project completion. The figure may therefore be highly uncertain.

I have heard about a new acquisition which will certainly lead to future expansion. Will it be on the database?

It will if and when a capital investment project is announced.

What are your sources?

Our sources include newspapers, newswire services and economic development agencies publications.

With which organizations is the information verified?

With the investing company, or when not possible, with local government authorities (usually economic development services).

How frequently is the on-line database updated?

At least once a month.
