Crimea has opened its doors for investment from China, Russian business rights ombudsman Boris Titov told Sputnik Monday.
"We have talked to Chinese investors. They have no restrictions. They do not fall under any sanctions, so Crimea for them is a zone that is open to investments," Titov told Sputnik News Agency in an interview.
Russia is expected to designate Crimea and Sevastopol as a special economic zone with tax breaks to attract investors. Crimea has adopted the Russian ruble as its official currency.
The business rights ombudsman added that "the program of a special economic zone in Crimea has its pros and incentives for investors."
Crimea joined Russia in March, following local referendum on region’s status, which is not recognized by international community.
