The Regional Investment Agency has announced the interim results for the first half of 2016, the Primorsky Territory official website reports.
In six months, the Agency has accepted 28 new applications for project support from Russian and international businesses. The new projects include an aquaculture enterprise in Luchegorsk, the development of crop farming in Khankaysky district, a clothing factory in the Nadezhdinskaya advanced special economic zone (ASEZ), and an upholstery factory.
“Applications received by the Agency are usually focused on obtaining additional investment, a land plot, and advice on matters of investment, legislation and marketing.
