Kamchatka: the desire for financial independence
Marina SaturdayDeputy Chairman of the Government of the Kamchatka Territory
In search of investment
Today our main goal is to attract investments into the economy of the region. In this regard, we attach great hopes to the investment forum: we would like to see here primarily those who are interested in investing in the Kamchatka Territory. This year, we had good presentations and trips, for example, we saw the interest of the Chinese partners. And today we are waiting for a fairly large delegation from this country. Great interest is also shown in Korea, the delegation from Japan also announced its intention to come. In addition, it would be nice to see the forum and our, local investors. They exist, and today they are ready to invest their money in the development of the economy. The implementation of major investment projects in Kamchatka will increase those taxes and revenues to the budget that will reduce the dependence of the region on federal aid.
Today, a major project is being considered to create a territory of priority development in the port of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. This is quite a large area, and the implementation of this project will allow us to increase the GRP several times, the flow of regional taxes, and create new jobs. This is quite a complex, multifaceted project, now it is analyzed by representatives of the Ministry of Eastern and Eastern Development. It is planned that by September 1, proposals on the approval of the list of TASED in the territories of the Far East will be submitted to the President of the Russian Federation.
Local business support
Within the framework of the imposed sanctions, the development of the agro-industrial complex is very interesting, which also needs investment. We plan to discuss with the Far Eastern regions and with investors how our region can provide for itself and how to establish interregional ties, ensure food security and independence of the Far Eastern region. Small and medium-sized businesses are ready to develop - both in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and Elizovo, investment sites are being created to support it.
In Kamchatka, a legislative framework has long been developed for public-private partnership projects. One thing is missing - federal legislation. We are looking forward to it. The relevant law was passed in the first reading, the second reading will be held in the autumn session. I think after this mechanism will work. We have already considered more than one PPP project, which was not implemented solely due to the lack of federal legislation. Therefore, as soon as the law is passed, we will undertake the implementation of projects on the basis of PPP. Creating infrastructure at the expense of public funds reduces the cost of projects and reduces the time frame for their implementation.
Waiting for tourists
Great prospects for tourism: whoever comes here, everyone is fascinated by Kamchatka. It is necessary to observe the golden mean: not to touch our nature, but at the same time to build cozy hotels, to develop routes for tourists. It is clear that you need to do something with the cost of tickets. On the other hand, the more travelers will fly here, the more the cost of tickets will decrease. To provide comfort to the arriving, we have prepared a project for the reconstruction of the airport. The second gate of Kamchatka is a sea terminal. One of the agreements, which we will sign, concerns cruise ships entering here. I hope all this will help make Kamchatka a corner, which, despite its uniqueness, will be accessible to all. Then the economy will reach a serious level, which will allow us to move away from dependence on the federal budget and live our own, independent life.
We are very pleased with the approach of the Ministry of Regional Development and the Government of the Russian Federation, according to which the territories for advanced development should be in each region. In Kamchatka, the creation of infrastructure will cost more, and Minvostokrazvitiya understands this.
The third platform - the agro-industrial park "Nagorny" - we develop ourselves, make project documentation. We have residents there. As for the tourist-recreational cluster ... This platform is also ready, with it we are ready to declare through Rosturism, and in this we are supported by the Ministry of Eastern and Eastern Development. Today we are looking for sources for the development of Paratunsky settlement, since it is necessary to create an infrastructure there in order to develop tourism in this area.
Like everything new, the project develops not without obstacles, but still fast. The bill on TOSER (the territory of advanced socio-economic development) has already been introduced, and the president and the prime minister promised that in the autumn it should already be approved. Probably, there will be some difficulties in the implementation, because without them there is no. Nevertheless, the start is given, and everything planned will be realized.
