A group of Russian companies, specializing in the newest and ecologically clean technologies, intends to build several cattle-breeding farms in Bashkiria. In total complexity investors are ready to erect four cattle-breeding centers in different regions of the Republic and the total sum of expected investments is estimated at three billion rubles.
“Originally we wanted to start working in Tver and Ulyanovsk regions but after we had paid a visit to Bashkortostan, we changed our plans” – representatives of the investing companies told – “the ombudsman for protection of rights and interests of business circles in federal executive power bodies under the business organization “The Support of Russia” Svetlana Khalfina organized this visit to your Republic. The absence of administrative obstacles, availability of agricultural lands in necessary volumes and comfortable investment climate were the main criteria for us. The approach of your officials gladdened us – they promised lands, tax benefits and subsidies, so we decided to build the farms in Bashkortostan”.
In opinion of Svetlana Khalfina “development of agriculture is considered top priority and strategic direction in development of the country. At present time there are more than 80 million hectares of pastures and fallow lands in Russia but the major part of these lands lay abandoned”.
