It is designed to teach the teams of regional managers about the best practice, identified by the National investment climate rating in constituent entities of the Russian Federation.

The program consists of three stages. During the first day, the participants were given methodical guidelines on project management when addressing the issues of improving the investment climate in constituent entities of Russia. At the second stage, specialized teams are taught how to simplify construction permits issue procedures, increase the efficiency of investment promotion, work with investors, build the dialogue between authorities and business, improve the quality of organizational and infrastructure support for small businesses, etc. During the final third day, regional teams are to work on the project that teaches them to expand the use of project-based approach to improve the investment climate in the Tomsk Region.

The delegation of the Tomsk Region, participating in the program, includes Nikolay Glebovich, Acting Deputy Governor of the Tomsk Region for Industrial Policy, Igor Shaturny, Deputy Governor for Construction and Infrastructure, Aleksandr Fedchenko, Head of Investments Department, Svetlana Gruzhykh, Head of Department of Labour and Employment, Aleksey Sevostyanov, Head of Department for Information Policy of Tomsk Region Administration, Elena Lazicheva, Deputy Mayor of Tomsk for Economic Development and others.

Reference: Since November 2014, the Agency for Strategic Initiatives alongside the leading business unions has been implementing the National investment climate rating in all constituent entities of Russia. In 2015, the Tomsk Region was attributed to the second (out of five) group of the rating – “Regions with comfortable business environment”. The region is one of the only two regions representing Siberian Federal District (along the Kemerovo Region) in the rating. In July 2015, at the seminar on the results of implementation of the rating, Andrey Nikitin, Director General of ASI, mentioned Tomsk Region’s experience in making contracts with small and medium businesses while elaborating road maps alongside “Gazprom” as the best regional practice.
