In order to create new enterprises, it is necessary to introduce a phased use of land plots with a ready infrastructure, while taking into account the different orientation of the SEZ, related to their specifics.

We have SEZs focused on petrochemicals, metallurgy, on the development of logistics, tourism. It is not easy to immediately bring the world’s leading players in them.
