The state Duma adopted in the first reading the bill directed on formation of legal bases of activity of industrial parks.

A document submitted by a group of deputies in the law «On industrial policy in the Russian Federation» introduced the concept of «industrial Technopark», which refers to a set of infrastructures designed for the production not previously produced in industrial production and/or not having produced in Russia analogues.

The bill also proposes to approve the procedure for application of measures to stimulate activity in the industry, to define the powers of the government of the Russian Federation on establishment of requirements for industrial, technology parks, their infrastructure and managing companies of industrial parks, and the powers of the authorized Federal Executive body on confirmation of conformity of the industrial technology Park with such requirements.

These changes will contribute to the modernization of industrial infrastructure and increase the number of industrial parks, which in turn will create new high-tech production of competitive domestic products, according to the authors of the document.
