Project Description

The proposed project involves construction and operation of a greenfield production facility for digital electronic equipment (TVs and audio equipment) and white goods (washing machines and refrigerators) with a total cost of $120 mln. The plant will be located in the Ruza region of Russia, 70 km from Moscow. The Project also involves the construction of buildings and infrastructure for several Korean component manufacturers, who will be located on the Project site and produce various components to the Project. The Project is aimed to benefit from the growing demand for digital electronic equipment and durable home appliances and will bring Russian-built, international quality modern products at an affordable price to Russian consumers.

Transition Impact

With its investment the Bank will mainly support the establishment of the supplier base for the Project thus developing the domestic component manufacturing industry.

The Project is also expected to generate a positive transition impact through skills transfer to local employees, who will be trained to operate and maintain modern production equipment, as well as will acquire skills and know-how in the areas of management and quality control.

Another transition impact is the promotion of greater competition in the consumer electronics and white goods sectors and demonstration effect associated with successful operations of the Company. LG’s entry will foster market efficiency, innovation and higher standards in the whole industry as western quality products will become available at reasonable prices. This will prompt domestic producers to adapt to more competitive market environment. The Project will play a positive role in improving corporate governance and business standards in the industry.
