The trend is accelerating: Why the largest Russian companies are moving from Moscow to Siberia

RusHydro, which is currently the third largest hydro generating company in the world, is moving from Moscow to Krasnoyarsk.

It should be noted that before that, another energy giant En + Group “moved” its head office to Irkutsk, and AFK Sistema, RUSAL, SUEK, Polyus and other.

Obviously, Siberia is becoming more and more attractive for most domestic companies. At the same time, the aforementioned trend increased noticeably after President Vladimir Putin announced the need to transfer federal structures to Siberia in the summer of 2021, as well as after the words of Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu about the need to build new cities in Siberia.

Nevertheless, it is hardly worth talking now about the so-called "fourth wave" of resettlement beyond the Urals. The trend is not yet so global. At the same time, the special interest of the authorities and the largest Russian companies in the region did not arise by chance.

The thing is that Siberia is a real "storeroom" of minerals. There is everything here, from oil and coal to metals, as well as other important resources.

At the same time, many experts believe that the world today is on the verge of a new resource supercycle - a period that begins with a noticeable increase in demand for resources. That is why the development of our northeastern region with its largest deposits is now of particular relevance.

As for the reasons that are already capable of launching the aforementioned supercycle in the near future, they primarily include the accelerated decarbonization of Western economics and transition to renewable energy sources. The so-called "green trend" will provoke a sharp increase in demand and prices for copper, nickel, aluminum, and other metals, without which the same "renewable energy" is impossible.

According to economists' forecasts, the aforementioned supercycle could last about 10 years, which is not much. Therefore, in order to get the maximum benefit from this process, we need to prepare all the necessary infrastructure now.

Finally, do not forget about another important point. The active development of Siberia will help Russia not only earn money, but also relieve the burden on the capital by redistributing financial and human flows in favor of other Russian cities, which will undoubtedly benefit our country.

      For some reason you are not happy. And what is typical for your lads, you immediately begin to invent mottos. Learn a profession, do something useful.

    It is high time to abolish this vacuum cleaner city called Moscow. Turned into an office zoo. City of office plankton recycling paper. Disperse all departments in different cities.

      +100500. Aptly! I would add an office-merchant zoo. Do not disperse them, but transfer their salaries, as in most Russian regions, from which they "suck" the juices! They themselves will escape from this Moscow "paradise" ...

        They run because the fee for offices in Moscow has exceeded all conceivable limits. This is the first. Secondly, who said that these are the main offices? The main ones are behind the cordon. In the modern world, company offices do not matter - there are representative offices and a head office. Often representative offices are even larger than the head office.

    In general, if companies were registered at the legislative level at the place of work of the main industries, and the owners would also be registered in those cities where the very main production, in about five years, many beautiful cozy and rich cities, towns and even villages would appear around the country ...
    If only the United States and allies would impose sanctions on offshore companies from the Russian Federation, I think something like this would begin to appear
