    Ladies and gentlemen

    In order to make effective use of the competitive advantages which our Krai possesses, we are concentrating on increasing the flow of investment into the regional economy. The current trend in this area gives cause for hope. In the face of last years negative growth in the Russian economy, investment in Stavropol grew by 8.4 billion roubles. This year has already seen a jump of one third. In the 2020 Socioeconomic Development Strategy for Stavropol Krai we have set ourselves the task of becoming one of the ten leading regions in Russia by annual volume of capital investment.

    The key to success is to create the most accommodating conditions possible for business in the Krai.

    That encompasses business-mindedness on the part of the authorities, lowering bureaucratic obstacles and respect for the rights and lawful interests of proprietors.

    We are taking meaningful steps to support small and medium-sized businesses. Opportunities to profitably attract and invest capital are growing. Mechanisms for revolving subsidies, innovation credit and leasing have been established. The Krais guarantee fund for the support of small and medium-sized business began its work last year. With regard to support for small business, Stavropol Krai today holds fifth place amongst Russian regions in the National Institute for Systematic Studies of Entrepeneurship rating.

    We associate dynamic growth with the wide adoption of innovation. In institutional terms, that means an adequate rights framework and the creation of centres of innovation and technology, technology parks and related infrastructure. A system to identify and support innovators is being set up and knowledge-intensive projects are being implemented, in particular the regional pharmaceutical cluster and a factory to manufacture a new generation of photoelectric systems which Stavropol is to build in cooperation with the Rosnano corporation.

    All this has naturally played its part in buoying the mood of the business community and its enthusiasm for widening its involvement in investment projects in Stavropol. Even major businesses have joined in. Massive projects are under way in Budyonnovsk and Nevinnomyssk, and the stage has been set for building regional industrial parks.

    The Russia-wide ratings agency Expert RA has included Stavropol Krai in the eight regions in its growth group which are most resilient to the aftermath of the financial crisis. Logically so, since after all we are not just looking down and treading water, but watching the horizon and welcoming new partners to the mutual rewards of cooperation. We hope that the edition of the periodical which you are holding in your hands will be a reliable guide to the land of growing opportunities- Stavropol Krai.

    Yours

    Although founded as a fort in 1777, Stavropol has in fact long been a unifier. Its central position on the Azov-Mozdok Line has made it an ideal crossroads of trade and culture- hence its having the North Caucasus first theatre, library, museum, and newspaper. Modern Stavropol is among southern Russias leading business, administrative and educational centres, and the creation of the North Caucasus Federal Okrug (NCFO) has only opened up new opportunities.

    City For LifeThe World Health Organisation has likened Stavropol, one of the first Russian participants in its Healthy Cities initiative, to Lyon, Geneva and Barcelona in terms of quality of life, and the UN has a
