The formation of territories with special legal regimes of economic activity, including special economic zones, is considered as a trend in the acceleration of regional socioeconomic development. Factors are revealed that hinder the development of special economic zones. It is proposed to monitor the functioning of such territories, making it possible to identify factors that affect regional development. By the example of the special economic zone in St. Petersburg, the authors demonstrate the use econometric tools to assess the performance of territories with special legal regimes of economic activity.
