The new laws contain refined criteria, upon which participants in the SEZ are to be selected, and enhance the preferences in business operations and in customs formalities.

The SEZ was set up in the region in 1999.
Special Economic Zones began to develop in Russia as of 2005 under the guidance of the company ROSOEZ. They have brought together 400 investors from about 30 countries.
Russia has six SEZes of the manufacturing type that are located in large regions close to the places where natural resources are produced, five zones of the technological type located in large centers for research and education for stimulating innovative businesses there, four zones of the tourist type embracing the popular tourist destinations where the conditions are conducive to the development of recreational business, and two zones of the logistical type near the major transportation routes that help control supply chains.
