"More than 10 countries of the world participate in the capital of these residents, including Belarus, China, USA, Switzerland, Germany. 70% of the companies are of a production nature. They operate in various fields: electronics, mechanical engineering, new materials, pharmaceuticals, production of medical devices. There are residents who are engaged in research and development and projects in the service sector, "- said the deputy general director.
More than $ 200 million has already been invested in the construction of roads, gas and electricity supply systems, household water treatment, etc. in the Great Stone.

Such premises occupy 95 thousand square meters, "added Sergei Vaitekhovsky.
