As a result of today's meeting of the Expert Council, we are exceeding this level," Ilshat Tazhitdinov, First Deputy Prime Minister of the Government — Chief of Staff of the Government RB said. "We continue to work systematically and intensively to attract new residents. I would also like to note that the projects of the six operating residents of the Alga special economic zone are being implemented as usual.

Our primary task is to provide them with engineering, transport, energy, and other necessary infrastructure by the time they start production."
