On April 16, 2014 Dmitry Medvedev, Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, signed a regulation on expansion of Lyudinovo Special Economic Zone area by 432 ha. The new special economic zone land plot is located in Borovsk District of Kaluga Region.
Thus the nearest to Moscow industrial special economic zone will be located at the border of Moscow Region. Previously the special economic zone consisted of land plots of 610 ha in Lyudinovo District, Kaluga Region.
The SEZ territory was expanded as it was necessary to offer more opportunities to potential investors.
Today the special economic zone is a home to the largest greenhouse facility in the Central Federal District with the area of 237 ha. Four residents more plan to start construction of their production facilities in the SEZ by the end of 2015. Negotiations are held with more than 30 companies. According to the development plan all residents are to start operations in SEZ Lyudinovo site by the end of 2018.
The addition of new land plots to the SEZ territory in Borovsk District allows to build new hi-tech production facilities in the vicinity of Obninsk, a science city and a source of highly qualified personnel. The new plot features a unique proposal to investors as it is located next to production facilities of Vorsino industrial park, Freight Village (a modern multimodal logistics center) and Ermolino airport.
Tax benefits offered to residents of special economic zones will also be available to residents of the new SEZ plot.
Lyudinovo industrial special economic zone was established in the territory of Lyudinovo District, Kaluga Region, pursuant to Regulation No. 1450 of the Government of the Russian Federation of December 28, 2012.
