“Business Navigator is a one-stop shop for investors who plan to implement their projects in the shortest possible time and at the lowest cost“ – Director of The Association of Clusters, Technology Parks and SEZ of Russia Andrey Shpilenko.
“Now we have a two-factor assessment of the effectiveness of the SEZ. The first is our federal assessment, where the key indicator is the return of budget funds. The second performance evaluation is an independent evaluation in which the business itself and experts evaluate the investment attractiveness of the sites in terms of ease of doing business. According to the results of this assessment, Association of Clusters, Technology Parks and SEZ of Russia annually compiles a Business Navigator for the SEZ, ”- Deputy Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation Dmitry Vakhrukov.
In 2022, the investment attractiveness rating included 28 SEZs from 22 regions of Russia.

Among the SEZs of the industrial production type are "Lipetsk" (Lipetsk region), "Alabuga" (Republic of Tatarstan), "Moglino" (Pskov region), and the most dynamically developing site, for the second year in a row, is the "Alga" SEZ (Republic of Bashkortostan ).
The rating methodology takes into account the experience of determining more than 25 leading domestic and international ratings of investment attractiveness, competitiveness, ease of doing business and other mechanisms for assessing the investment climate.
The rating methodology is based on a comprehensive assessment of the level of investment attractiveness of the Russian SEZ, as well as favorable conditions for attracting Russian and foreign investors grouped into 7 blocks: investment attractiveness of the Russian region; favorable conditions for entrepreneurial activity in the SEZ, provision of the SEZ with infrastructure; land resources; investment activity of SEZ residents; information openness of the SEZ website and a new block - global economic challenges.
The rating methodology is based on the use of a number of statistical data and information from the Federal State Statistics Service of the Russian Federation received from the SEZ management companies, the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia and from other open sources, expert assessments provided by SEZ residents and representatives of the business community. A feature of the rating is the conduct of experiments by potential foreign and domestic investors, which assessed the efficiency and quality of providing information on the availability of the necessary industrial and engineering infrastructure for locating new enterprises in the SEZ.
