Two main areas of investment site activity are: commercialization of scientific research results, and development of industrial manufacture. Number of sites grows constantly; their level changes. Today, many investors of industrial facilities choose Alabuga SEZ and Master KIP because of their extended infrastructure. Meanwhile, there are Investors who choose other sites because of other factors depending on the industry, geography, etc.
