Naberezhnye Chelny Priority Social and Economic Development Area again among the leaders of single-industry cities of Russia
Naberezhnye Chelny Priority Social and Economic Development Area made the top 10 of the single-industry cities of Russia. The award was presented by the Minister of Economic Development of Russia Maxim Oreshkin and Director General of the Fund for the Development of the Single-Industry Cities and Towns Irina Makieva at the forum-meeting on the development of single-industry cities and towns of the Russian Federation.
The area of the Naberezhnye Chelny Priority Social and Economic Development Area is 171 square kilometers. It has a developed transport, social and utility infrastructure. The status of the Priority Social and Economic Development Area contributes to the improvement of the investment climate. The residents of the Priority Social and Economic Development Area enjoy the reduced income tax rate, lower insurance premium rates, and the exemption from the property and land tax.
According to the achieved planned target, the Naberezhnye Chelny Priority Social and Economic Development Area became the first among 54 Priority Social and Economic Development Areas of the Russian single-industry cities and towns. Among its residents there are such companies as LLC Haier Fridge Rus (production of refrigeration equipment), JSC Insulating Pipe Plant (production of steel pipes and the application of a high-strength protective coating), LLC Haier Laundry Machine Rus (production of the washing machines), LLC Haier Fridge Rus (production of refrigerators), LLC Kama Trade-Tatarstan (creation of a EPS metal-processing service center) and other companies.
“Tatarstan leads the pack in terms of the number of the Priority Social and Economic Development Areas. The government of Tatarstan takes the active measures to develop areas beneficial for business. Priority Social and Economic Development Area is an essential tool for strengthening the economy of the region and the country as a whole. Naberezhnye Chelny is a perfect example. The Haier refrigeration plant, for example, became the first Haier manufacturing plant in Russia. Over 3 years, the plant produced more than half a million units. By implementing a new investment project with Chinese partners, Smart Plant, for the production of washing machines, we are rapidly moving towards the creation of the whole Haier industrial park,” said Taliya Minullina, the Head of the Tatarstan Investment Development Agency.
