On 14 December 2016, the AEB North-Western Regional Committee (the AEB NWRC) took part in the regular meeting of the Investment Council under the Governor of the Leningrad region, which took place in Tikhvin, the Leningrad region, at the premises of Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant.

The meeting was devoted to the improvement of the investment climate and project management in the Leningrad region. Andreas Bitzi, Chairman of the AEB North-Western Regional Committee, presented the results of the survey conducted in cooperation with the administration of the Leningrad region among AEB members operating in the region. The aim of the survey was to assess the level of satisfaction of European investors and AEB members with the investment climate in the Leningrad region, with the work of investor support organisations, and the problems arising during the implementation of investment projects in the region. Summing up the results of the survey, which revealed that the majority of investors are satisfied with the investment climate and cooperation with the regional authorities, the AEB NWRC expressed its readiness to continue working with the administration of the Leningrad region, the front-office (AERLO), and other support organisations to further improve the level of participation of AEB members in regulatory assessment process and in the development of regional legislation.
