Doing business in Russia
Government support
In recent years, the Russian government has been actively promoting investments in certain industries with a view to greater localization, development and deployment of innovations, broader economic diversification, as well as accelerating the development of specific territories.

To do so, federal, regional and municipal authorities establish territories with a special status, execute various investment promotion and public-private partnership (PPP) agreements, offer tax benefits and subsidies, grant preferential access to public procurement and run various government-sponsored programs.

Generally, such incentives apply irrespective of whether the investments are of a domestic or foreign origin. However, most of them require the establishment of a Russian legal entity.
