SIMFEROPOL, April 08, /ITAR-TASS/. Crimea has already received offers from potential investors to a sum exceeding one billion U.S. dollars, or twice as big as its current budget, Crimea’s Prime Minister Sergei Aksyonov told the Rossiiskaya Gazeta newspaper on Tuesday.
“We already have investment offers to a sum exceeding one billion U.S. dollars,” he said, adding that the sum was twice as big as Crimea’s current budget. “If we have at least one anchor investor, there will be no problems with others,” he noted.
Thus, Crimea has investment offers in the areas of farming, tourism and real estate.
“There are quite a lot of such offers,” Aksyonov noted.
According to the Crimean prime minister, there are plans to establish a special economic zone in Crimea, which will exempt investors from income and value added taxes completely or partially. It will entail “an extra flow of those willing to invest funds in the Crimean economy,” he said.
Moreover, practically all of Russia’s regions have offered cooperation to Crimea. “For instance, Tatarstan plans to open a repair base and assembly facilities. The Ulyanovsk region offers to set up a joint company that would be involved in the production of Tu-204 aircraft,” Aksyonov added.
