MIGRATION AND INVESTMENT ACTIVITY IN THE REGIONS OF THE SIBERIAN FEDERAL DISTRICT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION
This article analyses the migration and investment activity processes in constituent entities of the Russian Federation located in the Siberian Federal District (SFD). The research was performed on the basis of official statistical data with geographical visual reference. The study was performed in the mono-specialized cities of SFD regions on the basis of official statistics within the context of the creation of Priority Social and Economic Development Areas (PSEDA). A negative migration balance is registered in SFD regions and mono-specialized settlements. Investment activity in SFD territories, their regional potentials and risks were analyzed. Krasnoyarsk Territory, Tomsk Region, Irkutsk Region, Novosibirsk Region, and Kemerovo Region stand out among the SFD regions by their investment activity level and social and economic development. At the current stage of social and economic development, Priority Social and Economic Development Areas can be successfully created in the regions which are the most developed both industrially and innovatively and in the mono-specialized settlements with the most favorable start conditions.
