The Investment Council of the Republic of Tatarstan, chaired by President Rustam Minnikhanov, gave the green light for the construction of its own Regionliftmash PLC plant worth 600 million rubles. Other local investors received generous bonuses in the form of free plots.

They enter where they didn’t want to, so they don’t work in their specialty
The Republic Investment Council, chaired by President Rustam Minnikhanov, has approved six projects totaling 4.82 billion rubles. No one is going to delay construction: the projects, as they say, are on track, just waiting for the “presidential” green light. Each of them will be implemented in 2022-2023, no more. Thanks to them, 1,654 additional jobs will have been created by then.
Although the meeting of the Investment Council itself was held behind closed doors for the media, after its conclusion investors and the head of the Investment Development Agency of the Republic of Tatarstan, Talia Minullina, addressed the press and shared their plans. It turned out that among the initiators of the six approved projects, only one has the status of a resident of PSEDA, the rest of the investors received state aid as free land.
For example, the Tatarstan IT company Discover Software presented the Round mobile application project. The investment is estimated at 180 million rubles. Based on the system and the playful and educational challenges, the application helps teenagers to decide on their future profession. The representative of the company said that he proposed to organize a republican competition for career guidance among schoolchildren through the application Round, the president supported the idea.
“A lot of students enter where they don’t want to. Then people don’t work in their specialty,” complained Talia Minullina.
To convince how important it is to determine your capabilities in time and choose a profession, the head of the agency gave an example from her personal life.
“Well, ask those around you what their [colleague’s] specialty is,” she noted in a conversation with reporters after the end of the meeting of the Investment Council at the Government House of the Republic of Tatarstan. “For example, I am a French teacher . And I had to do additional studies, after which I found another job.
For this reason, the above-mentioned project will receive a great response, the head of the agency is sure. “The president has instructed to involve secondary schools and industrial companies in this work. It’s an interesting project, even if it’s not a big one, like the ones we’re considering at the investment board,” she concluded.
Own brand lifts
Tatarstan’s elevator assembler – Regionliftmash company – submitted an application for the construction of a factory for the production of passenger elevators. Its investor is a PSEDA resident of the Zelenodolsk district, where the plant is supposed to be built. The volume of investments will amount to 600 million rubles, and the launch date is 2022 year.
“In Tatarstan it will be the first own production,” said Talia Minullina. “Before that, negotiations had taken place with several foreign companies interested in the Russian market. For example, there are powerful Korean manufacturers who supply a lot of equipment to Russia. But finally, a local player was formed. Previously, they were engaged in the installation of elevator equipment, and now it has been decided to localize the production of elevators in Tatarstan.
To support the local industrialist, the possibility of a public contract is being worked out – guaranteed sale, in order to ensure the stability of the company for years to come.
“We are currently discussing the scheme of a compensation contract,” said Talia Minullina. “They are not developed in Russia so far, because they are part of the 44th federal law. However, the first five offset contracts were held by Moscow. The regions cannot do this because the state declares what volume is guaranteed necessary. The condition is 10 years. The volume of investments is at least 1 billion rubles. And the manufacturer is local. Therefore, they do not work under compensation contracts in However , the Ministry of Finance of Russia admits that the amount of minimum investment can be reduced to 400 million rubles, but this norm has not yet been legally approved.
Lilia Zagidullina, managing director of Regionliftmash PLC, explained that the design of the lift will be 70% own components and only the key elements – winch and cables – will be purchased. The pilot sample is due to appear in the summer of 2022.
Megastroy presented a project for the construction of a logistics distribution center worth 1.5 billion rubles. Its area is 23,000 m². Now the company has a center of 10,000 square meters in its assets. “The new distribution center will allow us to increase the company’s turnover by 10% and start expanding to other regions,” said Vladimir Malygin, president of the company.
Among those approved is the RariTEK Technologies investment project, which involves the construction of two CNG base stations in Naberezhnye Chelny and Mendeleevsk, as well as the production of mobile complexes for methane refueling on the road.
“Today there are 28 CNG gas filling stations in operation on the territory of Tatarstan, three new ones: one in Mendeleevsky district, two in Naberezhnye Chelny. In total, there will be 31 stations,” said Talia Minullina.
