Part of the capacity has already been put into operation. Corporations such as HAIER and their project in Tatarstan are an example for other companies. It was this company from the Shandong province that chose Tatarstan not by chance, but because Tatarstan has the best investment climate in Russia. There are tax preferences in the republic, special relations to each investor.
