Russia and Belarus to launch production of agricultural machinery in Bashkortostan SEZ

The territory of the industrial park “Ufa” will become part of the special economic zone of the industrial and production type “Alga”. The Belarusian company “Amkodor” will place on this territory a plant for the production of equipment for post-harvest grain processing and a plant for the production of municipal equipment. This became known during the working visit of the delegation of the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia to Bashkortostan.

Joint productions implemented within the framework of cooperation between the Republic of Bashkortostan and the Republic of Belarus will be launched at the expanded SEZ site. Currently, documents are being prepared for submission to the Ministry of Economic Development of Russia of an application to increase the territory of the SEZ “Alga” at the expense of the territory of the industrial park “Ufa”. The expansion of the SEZ will attract another 13.7 billion rubles of investment and create more than 750 jobs.

At the moment, residents of the SEZ “Alga” have already attracted 2.7 billion rubles of investments out of 35 declared, and more than 400 jobs out of 2 thousand declared have been created.

“Last September, together with the Prime Minister of Belarus Roman Aleksandrovich Golovchenko, we hammered the first pile of the future AMKODOR plant in the Ufa Industrial Park. And this year we will open this enterprise at the forum of the regions of Russia and Belarus. The plant will produce equipment that is very important and necessary for our agriculture and the entire Volga Federal District. That’s how we know how to build factories – 20 thousand square meters. m. And this is just the beginning, – said the Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov. – In general, the republic is in a good stage of its development. We have 12 industrial parks, 18 technoparks, 5 territories of advanced development, a special economic zone. And we continue to grow no matter what.”

“To date, there is one preference on the territory of the Ufa Industrial Park – exemption from corporate property tax. Also, one of the important aspects that attract investors is convenient logistics. Thus, the mechanism for including the industrial park in the special economic zone will provide potential residents with additional preferences in the form of reduced tax rates, accelerated depreciation, rental benefits, as well as the operation of a free customs zone,” said First Deputy Prime Minister — Minister of Economic Development and Investment Policy Rustam Muratov.

“Cooperation with Bashkortostan was not chosen by chance, all conditions have been created here to support investment projects from the republic. Agricultural machinery, which will be produced in Ufa, is planned to be delivered to the regions of Russia, as well as to Asian countries,” said Alexander Shakutin, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Amkodor Holding.
