Special project TORA and Free Port

Nikolay Pegin, General Director of OJSC Kamchatka Krai Development Corporation:

- TOP - today one of the important tools for the development of the Far Eastern territories, including Kamchatka. However, even for the entire Far East, launching even individual projects can give the maximum effect. This is the direct effect of the project, and the many multi-effects that it will generate. For our region it is, first of all, the creation of a multifunctional port-hub with an industrial-production zone in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. The implementation of the project will contribute to a significant increase in the throughput capacity of the Northern Sea Route, reducing the load on the Transsib. In the future, a real alternative to the traditional route from Asia to Europe via the Suez and Panama canals. Benefits from the implementation of this project are not only income from wiring, bunkering, storage, etc. The presence of the port will give impetus to the revival of ship repair and service for vessels, further development of fishing, fish processing, the most important directions of the economy of the region, will increase the attendance of the region, and, therefore, will become the basis for the development of the hospitality industry and tourism and recreation (in particular, the project for the creation and development of tourism Cluster "Paratunka" is considered as one of the elements of TOP).

Tax and other preferences, public financing - an important component in the successful implementation of these projects. It is not entirely clear what financial and other resources will be attracted to the TOP, how they will be administered. But I think that at the moment (if the projects are implemented) this is the first real contribution to the development of the Russian Far East.

While it is difficult to assume concrete results of the practical operation of the Law on TORs, but there is every reason to believe that if the draft TOR is sufficiently developed at the regional level and its choice was determined not by personal preferences, but by The logic of the development of the territory, the support of such a "locale" will become the driver for the development of the entire subject of the federation, the basis for raising the standard of living of the population, for Russia's realization of its Eurasian role in world history.
