“The Government of Moscow is interested in the location of new industries, therefore over the past few years there has been done significant work to improve the investment climate and create a comfortable business environment for industrial companies. Of course, the city is extremely interested in such large corporation as Siemens to place its production in the capital,” cites the press service the Deputy Mayor for economic policy and property and land relations Natalya Sergunina.
It is noted that the priority for Siemens in this cooperation document will be the creation and modernization of infrastructure and introduction of the concept of ‘smart city’.
Earlier this week, Russian newsagency Tass reported that Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin had instructed to develop within the state programme on urban policy a section for the industrial zones from the point of view of industrial clusters, rather than residential areas and trade.
