New requirements for investment projects in special economic zones


The government's decision to establish stricter requirements for investment projects implemented by residents of special economic zones has come into force. This decision was taken in order to improve the efficiency of SEZ functioning and attract better quality investments.

Among the requirements for investment projects implemented by SEZ residents will be a detailed investment project passport proving the project's potential for the region's economy. Also, potential SEZ residents will have to demonstrate their financial stability and ability to ensure the realization of investment commitments, confirming this with documentation.

Experts note that the new criteria and requirements for investment projects will help form more competitive and sustainable enterprises in SEZs, which will eventually lead to a stable development of the region's economy.
