Tatarstan is located in the centre of the largest industrial region of the Russian Federation and currently offers some excellent opportunities for North East exporters in many sectors including IT, finance, logistics, tourism and, with its large Muslim population, Halal goods and services.
Tatarstan has embarked on an ambitious investment programme aimed at diversifying the economy and developing private enterprise and a skilled entrepreneurial workforce. This is best evidenced by Innopolis, a hi-tech city/hub that has been built near Kazan and is the largest of its kind in Russia. Innopolis is situated in a special economic zone that has been designed and constructed specifically to encourage IT and high-tech industries (microelectronics, nanotechnologies, robotics and alternative energy sources etc) to locate there.
Although the programme is still being drafted the focus will be on meeting potential business partners. Costs will be partly underwritten by the Government of Tatarstan. The estimated cost per person will be in the region of £1500 and would include international and internal flights, visas and accommodation in Moscow and Kazan. Although the focus will be on Kazan, the Trade Mission will also include a networking opportunity in Moscow.
This Trade Mission is very timely as it coincides with the growing interest in Russia as an investment destination in the run up to the Football World Cup.
