"“The launch of a special economic zone is a large-scale project and, most importantly, a long-term one. Because we even make preliminary calculations for the next 10 years. It is important for us that we can give impetus to the development of our key industries - chemistry and petrochemistry, in which Omsk region has always been very strong. This will provide an opportunity to attract new technologies. Yes, they will be more costly, more capital-intensive, but for this we are creating a special economic zone so that there are tax preferences that would allow such capital-intensive and modern projects to be implemented. For us, this is another round of development of the industrial sector of our economy. Therefore, the project of a special economic zone for our region is very important and very promising.
