The best municipalities on work with investors were selected in the Ulyanovsk region

By results of the research "secret investor", the first positions in the rating were taken by Karsunsky, Kuzovatovsky, Melekessky and Old Mainsky districts.

 “For several years we have been solving issues consistently in order to create the most comfortable business conditions. Such projects as "secret investor" help us note flaws and eliminate them in time. Assessment criteria include the main directions within implementation of 12 target models on improvement of business climate”, - emphasized Sergey Morozov, the Governor of the Ulyanovsk region.

According to the regional Corporation for Enterprise Development, the research also touched upon regional authorities. The Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources, as well as Veterinary Medicine Department, were widely appreciated. The Ministry of Emergency Situations, the State Labour Inspectorate, the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate, the Ulyanovsk Customs and the Hygiene and Epidemiology Center also showed great results on work with potential investors. The research included data regarding organizations of engineering infrastructure and regional offices of banks.

According to the Chairman of the Board of the Ulyanovsk Region Corporation for Enterprise Development Ruslan Gaynetdinov, the main objective of "secret investor" is to elicit bad and good practices, to study them further in collaboration with participants in order to tackle the problems while working with a real investor in the future. “We have simulated specific business situations according to which our "secret investors" carried out their checks. The research estimated informational content of open sources, competence of advisory bodies, quality and effectiveness of communication, feedback from the potential investor and customer care”, - he explained.
