At the proper level, we have set up work to connect facilities to heat supply systems, centralized water supply and sanitation systems, to electric networks and gas distribution sources.

"They testify to how comfortable is the investor to conduct business in the Penza region - how quickly we can solve the issues with the necessary documentation when creating a new enterprise, connecting the facility to the engineering infrastructure. The decision of the investor depends on this - whether he will organize business in the Penza land, whether it will expand production. Our task is to work so that these decisions are made in favor of the Penza region, " - he stressed.
