Tatarstan with its capital Kazan, a historical city of over one-million people, is one of the most dynamically developing regions of the Russian Federation. Ernst & Young, PwC and Forbes suggest that Tatarstan is the best region in Russia for both investment and doing business. One way in which Tatarstan has distinguished itself from other parts of Russia is the emphasis it has placed on creating the necessary infrastructure to support and attract foreign capital. (Cutting-edge Kazan Smart City stands out for its uniqueness in whole Russia and is an excellent example of ready infrastructure for investors).

According to the World Bank's Doing Business in Russia 2012 report analyzing four areas of business regulation across 30 Russian cities—starting a business, dealing with construction permits, getting electricity, and registering property – Kazan ranks as 4th city in Russia with the most favorable business conditions. It effectively outperforms both Moscow and Saint Petersburg not only in the World Bank survey but also in several other significant criteria such as level of corruption, access to financing, availability of workforce, and transport as the study Measuring the Conditions of Doing Business in Russian Regions (available only in Russian) made by Ernst & Young and New Economic School suggests.
