The international Investing in North-West Russia: the Kaliningrad Perspective conference opens today in Kaliningrad. According to Rosbalt's correspondent, the forum was initiated by the East-West institute, the President's representative for the North-West District, and the Kaliningrad regional administration.

The forum will involve representatives of federal ministries, domestic and foreign business circles, and leading European banks. Three sections are planned: Improving the management mechanisms of the Kaliningrad Region special economic zone, Budget transparency as a means of improving the investment climate, and A presentation of investment projects.
