Currently, eight more projects are being developed. “Their implementation will provide more than 200 new jobs for residents of Dimitrovgrad, and the total investment will amount to over 230 million rubles,” the head of the department said.

It allows you to focus on the development of the economy of a single-industry town, attracting investment projects through developing infrastructure and tax preferences. At the moment, nine residents with an investment volume of 879 million rubles are operating in the territory of the TOSED Dimitrovgrad.
