Modern innovative technologies and high-tech industries play an increasingly important role in Tatarstan’s economy.

Currently Tatarstan has Russia’s largest special economic zone of industrial type Alabuga, 4 industrial parks, technopolis Khimgrad, 14 technical parks, etc.

The task of the "Khimgrad" is to unite the already existing leading companies and to boost the growth of new refining and petrochemical industries, as well as to create conditions for further redistribution of petrochemical products and for increasing added value.

The main purpose of the IT-park opened in 2009 is to accelerate the development of high-tech branches of industry and to manufacture new kinds of high-tech products using the scientific, educational and industrial potential of the republic.

The Republic of Tatarstan gives priority to the sphere of nanotechnology.
