According to the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation, the investment policy statement of a FEZ participant contains exhaustive information as on the quantity of jobs to be created, and the total quantity of jobs of individuals required implementing an investment project. This information is contained in the Feasibility Study, and in Clause 3.11 of Section III of the investment policy statement.
