OFFSET LOCALIZATION

The Federal Law on Offset Contracts was developed and adopted by the Moscow Government initiative . It states that investors undertake to establish a new production facility against guaranteed purchase of a part of the output. Three medical factories are localized in the Technopolis Moscow and will supply the city with essential products within seven years. These are the companies that decided to place an offset production in the Technopolis Moscow SEZ.

Five years ago, the Technopolis Moscow SEZ set up the Resident's Account online platform, where companies can report any problems, order and monitor services and run e-workflow. This allows tenants to learn about other residents' products and technologies and to implement joint projects.
