Dear Colleagues!

Investment policy of Saint-Petersburg is aimed at development of key economic sectors of the city, manufacturing industry and transport-logistics hub, support of ongoing enterprises and creation of new tourism and recreation clusters.

Our city is one of the leaders in public investment projects implementation in Russia. We are the first in the country who has implemented public-private partnership as a usual tool in this sphere.

The Governor of Saint-Petersburg
Alexander D. Beglov
Attraction of the investment climate of the Northern capital is determined primarily by the proven experience of awarding the status of strategic investment project to the best initiatives coming from business communities.

With the participation of business and expert communities the legislation and investments raising mechanisms are being improved, and administrative procedures are being simplified. The projects in priority sectors obtain property and tax preferences as well as comprehensive support from the government of Saint-Petersburg.

Besides, mechanisms of Regional Investment project and Large-scale investment project are successfully being implemented. The Regional Investment Standard – the new comprehensive mechanism for investors support – has become one of the perspective tools. Its elements have been successfully functioning in the city on the Neva River. I invite all of you to become more familiar with investment opportunities of Saint-Petersburg and join the cooperation.
Welcome to Saint-Petersburg!
