«Alabuga is the best team in the country. Alabuga is Rustam Minnikhanov» - Governor of the Novgorod Region Andrey Nikitin in an interview with RT Russia


The Governor of the Novgorod region Andrey Nikitin in his interview for the RT Russia channel (https://youtu .be/m2eLwdBkCcY) talked about why Alabuga took over the management of SEZ «Novgorodskaya»: «We decided not to reinvent the wheel, but to put Alabuga, Russia's most successful SEZ, under management. Alabuga has the most professional team in the country with the best reputation. We don't compete because we are in different geographies, and I asked them to join the founders. I was supported by Rustam Nurgalievich Minnikhanov, for which I thank him very much. Therefore, when large investors think where to build in the northwest, they, knowing that there is a reputation here, come to us».

It is important when the governor in the region is ready to make non-standard decisions for the development of his region. «Veliky Novgorod was chosen by the Alabuga team not by chance. Firstly, it all starts with the leadership - the Governor of the Novgorod Region is a very determined person who is ready to make non-standard decisions for the development of his region», Timur Shagivaleev, CEO of SEZ «Alabuga», said earlier.

The new SEZ «Novgorodskaya» has a convenient location between Moscow and St. Petersburg, which really does not compete with the current site of SEZ «Alabuga» in Tatarstan. The combination of these factors – the unique location and the use of the management experience of Alabuga makes the new SEZ «Novgorodskaya» even more attractive for investors and the state. The application of the best world practices by Alabuga will also contribute to the active and effective development of the site.

The Alabuga team has been given real broad powers to develop the site in the Novgorod region. Active support is provided at the highest level.

For reference:

On October 6, 2020, SEZ «Alabuga» signed a cooperation agreement with the Novgorod Region to create a SEZ on the territory of the region. On July 8, 2021, the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Mikhail Mishustin signed a decree on the creation of SEZ «Novgorodskaya».
