Industrial parks have contributed significantly to the economic development of many countries, and their potential to stimulate growth in Russia's industrial and manufacturing sectors is receiving growing recognition. Financed by membership fees and private donations, an umbrella body for Russian projects, the Association of Industrial Parks, was set up last year.
"Industrial parks have a 'ready to go' infrastructure," said Maxim Ivanov, chairman and founder of the group.
They create more jobs, more taxes for the local budget and they develop not only themselves, but also the surrounding infrastructure, he said.
"Considering the Russian economy's very promising future, we have a target to attract at least $500 billion of direct investment in industrial projects over the next five to 10 years," he said.
