We expect the multiplier effect of the construction of the cosmodrome

We expect the multiplier effect of the construction of the cosmodrome

Konstantin Dyakonov

Chairman of the Legislative Assembly of the Amur Region

Chairman of the Legislative Assembly of the Amur Region Konstantin Dyakonov - on the construction of the Vostochny cosmodrome:

- Such a grand building is very important for the region. As an economist by education, I expect a multiplier effect for the regional economy from the fact that our people, our business will be engaged in the construction of a cosmodrome. This year 500 construction teams from Amur universities will work on its construction sites.

Although, I will not hide, there are still difficulties. We very much hoped that the companies that work at the cosmodrome will be registered with us in the region. And accordingly, they will pay taxes to our budget. But while many of them are registered in other regions of Russia. The government of the region together with the plenipotentiary representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev solves this problem, and I hope that we will ensure that at least Amur branches of subcontractors are registered in our region.

As for the staffing problem, I have a personal opinion on this score: those who want to work at the cosmodrome (I will say more - who loves and knows how to work), who have a good profession, who is a real master of their business, they can always find and find work on the project, there would be a desire.

Personal impressions? You know, I have been to the cosmodrome more than once. I saw him both from the air and from the ground. Most impressive is the pad. Large-scale, grandiose construction! It takes your breath away when you stand on the edge, look into the depths, you can't see the bottom, and you understand that it will go up tens of meters too ... The governor and I more than once flew around the entire construction site by helicopter: the scale is enchanting. Work is going on everywhere, there are construction camps. Life is in full swing: roads, infrastructure are being built, power engineers are pulling their networks, electric welding is sparkling, machinery is working. Everything is in motion. You have to see it with your own eyes. Handsomely!

The Vostochny spaceport is the point of economic growth for the Amur region and the whole country, "says the speaker of the regional parliament.
