For us participation in this project of recognised world leaders in the field of creation and operation of hi-tech parks, founders of modern model of special economic zones - the Singapore colleagues and company Jurong Consultants is especially important.

- Key criterion of a choice of a platform for us first of all not a geographical position, and readiness of local administration, local business - communities to work in absolutely new, not conditions absolutely habitual for Russia.
