According to the traditional XX Anniversary rankings compiled by the RAEX (RA Expert) Agency, the Krasnodar region took the first place in the category "Investment Risk" and "High Efficiency of the Public Administration".
As the researchers note, only four regions have achieved a significant risk reduction in 2015 on the level of the investment potential, and the Krasnodar region ranked the first place. The positions of other subjects of the Russian Federation, including the leaders of the ranking – the Moscow region and St. Petersburg – have markedly deteriorated.
The Kuban share in the total Russian investment potential also increased and amounted to almost 3% in 2015. For comparison, shares of the similar leaders of the ranking: that one of the city of St. Petersburg exceed more than 4.5%, and that one of the Moscow region comes to 6%.
It is to be recalled that in the corresponding ranking of investment attractiveness of Russian regions, published by the leading national rating agency RA Expert at the end of 2014, the Krasnodar region is also recognized as the leading subject of the Russian Federation with the lowest investment risk and thus the best conditions for investors. In 2015, Kuban also took part in the National ranking of investment climate in the regions where the Krasnodar region took seventh place and entered the top ten regions with favorable conditions for business dealing.
