The head of Ufa administration Paul Kachkaev reported the totals of economic development of Ufa for this year at the traditional press-conference on the eve of the Republic Day.
For eight months of the year the index of industrial production in the capital of Bashkortostan made up 108,6%. The upsurge is registered in practically all branches of industry, except production of oil products (95,3%), rubber technical and plastic wares (88%), foods (95%) and transport vehicles (99,8%). The volume of industrial output on all branches made up 126%, as compared with the previous year, and exceeded 330 billion rubles.
The investments to the fixed capital made up 20,5 billion rubles – 101,1% to the last year level.
“At present time 71 investment projects for the sum of more than 96 billion rubles are found under development in Ufa” – Paul Kachkaev reported – “These projects will open 18 thousand new workplaces and this is our investment portfolio in 2011-2012. I believe that in 2012 the inflow of investments will increase, reaching the pre-crisis level – the level of 2008. We’ve made the “Atlas of Investor” at last. It is placed on the official city site and will help us to attract new investors, not just from our Republic and other Russian regions but from foreign countries too”.
