Изменение пространственной структуры промышленного производства в России в период экономического подъема, 1997-2004 годы
The article is dedicated to the analysis of the laws that determine the changes in the structure of industries' distribution in Russia during the period of economic growth in 1997-2004. The research shows that the geographic distribution of the production plants is still under the influence of the tendencies that existed during the Soviet times. However, one can observe the interregional industrial facility redistribution tendencies, although the scale and the speed of the change vary from one region to another. Among the factors that contribute to the changes one can name the regional investment climate characteristics, the regional scientific research potential, the interregional industrial ties and the ties that exist between the industries within one region. The research findings also show that the industries' geographic distribution is also influenced by the international competition trends.
