Moscow Region Starts Investment Campaign

The Moscow Region plans to unveil a new campaign in February to attract investment. The program was announced last week by acting Governor Andrei Vorobyov, Interfax reported.

"On Feb. 15, we will start a rather visible propaganda campaign for attracting investors to the region," Vorobyov said. "We will make it so that everyone who has the possibility and the desire — foreign investors, Russian ones — will have the ability to create jobs in the Moscow region."

The governor said regional municipalities had informed him that 359 commercial plots totaling 15,619 hectares are available.

The regional government now has investment requests worth 5 billion rubles ($165 million), Vorobyov added.
