The Department for External Economic and International Relations of Moscow is the body of executive authority of the City of Moscow responsible for drafting and implementing municipal policy on attracting foreign investment, developing international and foreign economic ties, maintaining Moscow’s international credit rating and individual debt obligations, sovereign foreign loans, holding international conferences and exhibitions, promoting Moscow as an international financial centre, and supporting compatriots abroad.
The Moscow City Investment Agency (Agency) was established with a view to raising investments and promoting and implementing projects that are deemed to have a high priority for the city. To this end, the Agency provides one-stop shop support for investment projects, develops economic and legal terms and conditions for the implementation of projects consistent with the interests of the city and investors, monitors and controls the implementation of investment projects, and introduces framework measures to improve the investment climate.
Moscow is Europe’s largest city, an agglomeration with the population of about 20 million, making it the biggest consumer market in Russia and Eastern Europe and a centre of investment activity.
In 2016, Moscow was ranked among Russia’s TOP 10 regions in investment climate quality and came in first place in the Public-Private Partnership Development Ranking.
Moscow’s budget expenses in 2016 were over RUB 1.7 trn, or over USD 26 bn. This puts Moscow among the world’s largest metropolises. Moscow’s budget is treble than that of Los Angeles (US), double that of Paris (France) and is comparable to that of London (Great Britain).
51 industrial companies have used the support offered by the Moscow Government to develop the real sector. 36 companies have been granted the status of an industrial complex, 12 that of a technopark and 3 anchor resident.
