Special Economic Zones in Russia
The Special Economic Zones in Russia are established by the Russian government to attract foreign direct investment. The privileges of special economic zones last for 49 years, and offer their residents a special legal status resulting in a number of tax and customs preferences.
Federal Law # 116 FZ was issued on July 22, 2005 to regulate SEZs.
Open joint-stock company OSJC "Special Economic Zones" was founded in 2006 to accumulate and implement world's best practices in developing and managing SEZ and promote Foreign direct investment (FDI) in the Russian economy. It is fully owned and funded by the Russian state. It managed fifteen to-be federal SEZs.
As of March 2010, Russia's federal SEZs host 207 investors from eighteen countries.
