Who does not take risks, he is not an investor

The annual rating of the investment attractiveness of the regions of the Russian Federation was published

Who does not take risks, he is not an investor

Agency Expert RA has published the next, 18-th in a row annual rating of investment attractiveness of the Russian regions. General trends for the whole country cannot be called particularly rosy. “Pessimistic” scenarios turned into “baseline”, unfavorable forecasts came true. As the experts predicted, the general slowdown in economic growth in the regions and the imbalance of the budget system were reflected in the deterioration of the investment climate.

As experts say, investors will feel more and more uncomfortable and restless in Russia. If earlier indicators of investment risks gradually decreased, then in 2014 year they can grow by about 2%. In a more or less favorable situation, on the general background, only those regions that have already managed to create the infrastructure necessary to attract investors will be able to remain. But there are quite a few of them, primarily Leningrad, Lipetsk, Kaluga, Sverdlovsk, Ulyanovsk and Rostov regions, as well as the Republic of Tatarstan.

As for the regions of the Far East, today they occupy far from the first positions in the overall rating of investment attractiveness. Only the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) was on the 19-th place, and the Primorsky Territory - on the 20-th. The remaining subjects are far behind: Khabarovsk Territory occupies 34-th place, Sakhalin Region - 50-e, Amur Region - 66-th, Kamchatka Territory - 71-th, Magadan Region - 74-th, Chukotka Autonomous Region - 78, Jewish Autonomous region - 79-e.

Thus, most regions of the Far East are currently experiencing serious problems, which are beyond their ability to overcome at the expense of their own forces and resources. At the same time, experts believe, the support of the federal center should be expressed not only in monetary support of regional budgets, but also in creating preferences and introducing incentives for potential investors, implementing large-scale infrastructure projects, supporting the socio-economic sphere and other measures that require a balanced approach and consistent implementation.

It is impossible to expect quick positive results in this case. However, the future of these regions can still be assessed with cautious optimism: as experience shows, the main thing in this policy is consistency.
