80% of industrial goods are exported
25 million small and medium-sized enterprises in the EU
100 million SME employees

"As the profitability of traditional types of commercial real estate decreases, investors are beginning to focus on segments that until recently were just "killer features" of projects or additions to the main functions. These include data centers. The total volume of the current supply in the Russian data center market is over 32,000 rack places, which are used by the largest companies and government agencies in Russia. The leader here is Rostelecom with 10,500 rack places. The vector of economic and social development will continue to stimulate the development of this kind of sites allowing companies to use increasingly sophisticated technologies".
