Investment stimuli rules change

THE MAXIMUM intensity of state investment aid will change after the cabinet passed on February 27 a measure targeted at awarding the highest stimuli to investment projects in sectors with high added value and located in underdeveloped regions.

THE MAXIMUM intensity of state investment aid will change after the cabinet passed on February 27 a measure targeted at awarding the highest stimuli to investment projects in sectors with high added
value and located in underdeveloped regions.

The differentiation in awarding investment stimuli, in compliance with the measure proposed by the Economy Ministry, should allow more aid for sectors with high added value and limit the aid for less attractive sectors, “while keeping the principle of providing more investment aid to investment projects in less developed regions”, the SITA newswire reported. The investment aid will thus depend on the unemployment rate in the region.

The maximum possible investment aid should go to projects of technological centres and centres of strategic services only in districts whose average unemployment rate is higher than 125 percent of the national average. For projects in industrial production and tourism the maximum state investment aid will be allowed only in districts with an unemployment rate of more than 150 percent of the national average.

No investment aid will be provided for projects in industry or in tourism in regions with unemployment rates lower than 75 percent of the national average. The measure is to become effective on March 15, SITA wrote.
