 Analysis of the Draft Law on Foreign Investment Activities in Nizhny Novgorod Oblast
To the extent the oblast has influence over laws of the Russian Federation or the applicability of federal laws to the oblast, the oblast should seek to have the laws of the Russian Federation similarly amended.
To the extent that the oblast government finds it necessary to provide incentives to foreign investors, this should be done on a nondiscriminatory basis—in specific sectors of priority to the oblast economy but not to specific projects or to specific investors.
Consequently, it is suggested that the oblast could better achieve its stated goals of attracting foreign investment and eliminating uncertainty in the law by issuing a proclamation of official oblast policy that includes the substantive provisions of the draft, such as the investment agreement.

 CEELI - Draft Law Assessments
Nizhny Novgorod is an oblast, and, as such, its laws are subject to national legislation by the Russian Federation.
One way to encourage foreign investment and to facilitate foreign investors doing business in the oblast would be to create an office to assist foreign investors in deriving the full benefits of the foreign investment climate in the oblast in connection with their investment and related activities.
Since it is understood that the oblast is not a state under international law but is, instead, a political subdivision of the Russian Federation, the cooperation of the Russian Federation would appear to be necessary in order to properly provide for any internationalization of agreements.

The Novgorod Tolerance Center (NTC) in the North-Western Federal District regularly conducts round-table discussions that bring together police officers and ethnic communities of Novgorod Oblast.
Such cooperation and mutual trust help prevent misunderstandings between local community and the Azeri diaspora and reduce the risk of occurrence of the Kondopoga-like riots in Novgorod Oblast that, to a great extent, became possible due to the lack of trust between an ethnic community and Kondopoga’s police and administration.
The result of this initiative was the rapid decrease of incidents between the two groups, because by writing essays on tolerance, local students could challenge their biases and prejudices and see the importance of cultural and ethnic diversity.
