Investment is a vital condition for ensuring the socio-economic growth of both the state and its specific territories. In order to form a balanced development policy, the authorities need to determine the investments priorities, thereby forming the economy growth points and identifying its vulnerabilities. At the same time, state regulation of investments should take into account the aspects of investment in specific territories.
