Only four other Russian constituent territories – the Belgorod region, the Chukotka autonomous okrug, the Tyumen region and the Yamalo-Nenetsk autonomous okrug – hold higher ratings (8.6, 8.5, 8.4 and 8.3 points respectively).
The position of the Penza region was strengthened by such positive events as the signing of an agreement between the region and “Association of Railroad Equipment Producers,” as well as a similar document with Bank Kuznetsky.
Another positive factor was a protocol of intentions with “Gradstroy” with plans to construct an elite crop seed regeneration facility in the Pachelma area.

As for the negative factors, the rating listed the speech of the Penza region governor Ivan Belozertsev on opposing the decision to abolish Zarechny as a closed administrative unit.
The notable events that did not end up influencing the rating included the Penza region joining Domofond.ru’s top 10 list of Russian regions with the largest decrease in flat rents.
