Moscow supports manufacturers. For example, companies that have obtained the industrial complex status enjoy significant preferences in terms of profit, property and land tax, etc. From 2016 to 2019, companies saved about RUB 168.7 m щn taxes due to this status. As for incentives for setting up production facilities, the optimal mechanism for public-private partnership in this industry is offset contracts. Moscow has already concluded five offset contracts with cumulative investments of almost RUB 13 bn. Three of them are related to the drug production.
These support mechanisms are bringing Moscow to the fore as one of the main national pharmaceutical industry development centers, and the access to technology and highly skilled personnel will greatly facilitate the localization of production in the capital.
