Abstract [en]

Due to the growing labour cost in China, many organisations are reconsidering their offshoring decisions of manufacturing based on the deprived competitive advantage of cheap workforces. In light of these circumstances, Russia can be seen as an alternative venue with lower wages and improved governmental policy. In order to support the statement, this article provides comparative country analysis in terms of the impact of wage growth on the selling price of products. Additionally, the regulatory role in the attraction of the investments to the national economy is highlighted. In the focus are multiple communication infrastructure projects, such as dry ports, which are essential transport nodes for supporting industrial zones, where freight traffic is generated and terminated. For their development across the perspective, economic regions, the resilient investment portfolios are proposed. The inclusion of reactive and proactive strategies allows mitigating the risks and allocating transport infrastructure required for the provision of nearshoring decisions on locating manufacturers in Russia.
