The article announces the launch of a set of tax incentives for Russian companies manufacturing software solutions for overseas markets. Outsourcing experts believe that the country is far behind Eastern Europe in its ability to win business from the West, despite efforts by the government to promote the country, highlight its assets and encourage growth in the information technology sector. The desire to build the country's outsourcing business has influenced government policy beyond the recent tax incentives.
