Incentives – in the form of tax breaks, training and other business services assistance – are a large part of what attracts companies to SEZ Alabuga. While such benefits look hugely attractive to prospective investors, Michal Kaczmarski reports on the impact they have for those that take up residence in the zone.
Special Economic Zone Alabuga has identified the biggest problems that investors in Russia usually face – namely, access to infrastructure and ease of trade across borders – and made sure that residents in the zone do not have to struggle at the hands of these issues.
Located in the republic of Tatarstan, Special Economic Zone Alabuga sits alongside cities that have a lot to offer investors in terms of infrastructure, development, leisure and culture.
