German Gref on Monday named six Russian regions that had won a contest for the right to create special economic zones
Economic Development and Trade Minister German Gref on Monday named six Russian regions that had won a contest for the right to create special economic zones. Research special economic zones will be created in Moscow (Zelinograd) – microelectronic research; the Moscow region (Dubna) – nuclear physics; St. Petersburg – information technology and instrument making; and Tomsk – new materials. Production special economic zones will be created in the Lipetsk region – production of household appliances and possibly furniture; and Tatarstan (Yelabuga) – manufacture of components for the aircraft industry and chemical products. Forty-seven regions had competed for the right to create special economic zones. Seventy-two bids were submitted, including 29 for research special economic zones and 43 for production special economic zones. Two bids from the Orenburg region and the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Area were rejected. The federal government plans to allocate eight billion roubles for special economic zones in 2006. Relevant budgets are expected to provide as much.
