Republic of Bashkortostan has won the first place at the VIII Russian regional congress “Regional development institutes and investment attractiveness of the regions: opportunities, problems and practice”, held in Moscow, in the nomination “The minimal economic risks of investing”. The forum was initiated by the rate agency “Expert RA”, which annually published rate has become the universally recognized instrument for assessment of the efficiency in activity of local administrations. The agency invited practically all Russian regions, the federal authority and federal development institutes, bank community, directors of the Russian Trade-Industry Chamber and the federal Russian funds to participation.

“The rate of the region is not the end in itself but statement of the fact of attractiveness of this or that region, the criterion of its maturity and objective evaluation of the state of things in the regions as well as in the country in a whole. We’d like to stimulate the competition of the regions in their struggle for investors” – the General Director of the agency “Expert RA” Dmitry Grishankov said.
