Foreign investment should amount to 423.5 million dollars in 2015, 557 million dollars in 2020.

Growth of the gross regional product should be in the range of 105-107 percent, the share of investments in the gross regional product is expected to increase to 27 percent, the share of agriculture in gross regional product — up to 10 percent.
