“How is the work going in finding investors for the landplot where the chemweapons facility will soon free?” Vasily Bochkarev asked Vladimir Volkov, acting Minister of Investment Development and Foreign Trade of the Penza region.
In his turn, the latter explained there was a large presentation meeting with a report from the Russian Ministry of Defense on the terms and times when the land will be free.
“The first part is practically free; we already took the stock. It is the area with the hotel, the separate utility lines node area, the building. We made an investment offer for that area. We are offering it to investors for potential project development. It can be used for two purposes right now: either for local production, or as part of a recreation zone,” Vladimir Volkov said.
Vasily Bochkarev ordered him to hold a meeting with businesses and discuss its potential.
“We must offer it for a lease with a prospective buyout, and so on. We have entrepreneurs who are ready and willing to expand: the confectionary cluster, the furniture cluster, may be the food production,” the governor concluded.
