The local government is implementing a 958 million RUB (14.5 million CHF) strategy to increase regional competitiveness.

Specialization as a key factor of success.

The region is already well-known as the best one in terms of oil refining (oil processing ratio above 86% compared to the 79.2% average in Russia) and as a leader in manufacturing, for example of concrete pumps (100% market share in Russia) and chemicals, metallurgy and iron-ore processing.

An economy that needs new production equipment.

Local companies need to renew their old and outdated production assets. Hence, the local government also grants subsidies to local companies to renew their equipment. For example, in the agricultural sector, the government is allocating a 6.9 billion RUB (1.03 billion CHF) budget for both farmers and machine suppliers, to support the purchase and production of equipment within the Eurasian Economic Union.
