Russian territories of outrunning development in mono-cities: Current and prospective opportunities for foreign investment into manufacturing

The paper describes a new form of investment attraction recently introduced in Russia—territories of outrunning socio- economic development (TOSEDs). These initiatives provide tax and other benefits to 20 territories in the Far East and to 90 cities in which a considerable number of jobs are concen- trated in a single factory (mono-cities). Using secondary sour- ces and interviews, we present the initial legislation for TOSEDs, the evolution of the initial legislation, and the func- tioning of TOSED residents. We also identify several opportuni- ties for foreign investors who have installed or intend to install their new manufacturing facilities in TOSEDs.
