BEIJING, April 24 (Itar-Tass) — Foreign investors working in the Pskov Region can count on personalised support for their projects, governor of the Pskov Region Andrei Turchak said here on Monday at the presentation of the economic, investment and tourism potential of his region.
“In recent years, Russian-Chinese relations have been developing very dynamically, and the strategic partnership between our two countries is not subject to any internal or foreign policy changes,” Minister Counsellor of the Russian Embassy to China Yevgeny Tomikhin who opened the event, said in his speech. “Certainly, ambitious tasks set by the leadership of Russia and China in the sphere of trade and economic cooperation cannot be fulfilled without deepening of inter-regional cooperation, which plays an important role in the whole complex of bilateral relations.” “In addition, against the background of the overall dynamic development of our relations, reciprocal investments, primarily Chinese investments in Russia are growing, unfortunately, very slowly,” the diplomat said. “We hope that familiarisation with the potential of Russia’s regions, in particular, the Pskov Region, will improve the situation, including in the sphere of investment cooperation.”
“The unique geographical position of the Pskov Region – a ‘gateway’ to Russia for the EU countries that has a land border with three states and that is located at the crossroads of Moscow and St. Petersburg, creates opportunities for the development of various spheres of business,” Turchak told reporters and Chinese businessmen. “Thus, a certain dynamics is observed in the development of the agricultural and transport and logistics sectors, and tourism is another ‘growth point.’” “It is so far largely internal,” the region’s governor said, “but we hope that the foreign colleagues will take an interest in our potential, especially during the Russian Tourism Year in China.” According to him, the project for the creation of the Moglino federal special economic zone of industrial type, implemented jointly with the Singaporean company Jurong International, is among the priorities.
“The Pskov Region is one of the few Russian regions, where investors are ‘doted on,’ and each of them can count on individual support,” the governor concluded, promising that there will be no subjective decisions in the regional administration’s approaches to the investors.
