The regiment of TORs arrived
EastRussia sums up the meeting of the subcommittee on investment projects in the Far East
The list of "lucky ones" includes the agricultural TOP "Belogorsk" in the Amur Region, "Kamchatka", "Mikhailovsky" in Primorye, "Beringovsky" and the industrial park "Kangalassy". Questions arose only about the Predmostovaya site in the Amur Region, since the commission did not understand who and for what money would build the bridge on which this site should be based, but it was accepted, albeit with reservations. The industrial and logistics site with an area of 857,3 hectares implies 128,9 billion rubles of private investment and the creation of 1530 new jobs.
The Commission approved the rest of the sites, and after the meeting even praised them for the fact that they are all promising and aimed at unlocking the unique potential of each of the regions. “All projects are different, the most important thing is that they all reveal the economic potential of the territory. This potential is also different. And another very important result of today's discussion: it seems to me that we managed to create a rather flexible shell of the TOPs, working with different potentials - sometimes it is resource, sometimes it is transit, sometimes it is agricultural, in other cases it is tourist. But we see that the shell of the territory of advanced development allows this potential to be revealed, and, therefore, to develop the Far East, ”said the Minister for Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka.
The specialists of the Kangalassy ASEZ of industrial orientation with an area of 16,9 hectares, which implies 1,11 billion rubles of private and 0,2 billion rubles of budget investments, and in return can give the region 350 new jobs, seemed difficult from the point of view of the project implementation. “This is a rather difficult area of priority development, projects are small, there are many of them, they are diversified. On the one hand, of course, it is more convenient to deal with 1-2 large understandable projects with funding. On the other hand, there are so many different small enterprises that, if they are implemented, they will definitely bring a lot of benefits to the Yakut land. Besides, the governor's position is good there. He is ready to bear full responsibility for the fact that all projects will be implemented, ”commented Trutnev on the project.
The agenda of the meeting was not limited to TOPs, there was talk about the Eastern Economic Forum, which, according to Trutnev, is planned to make it annual and specialized.
The participants in the meeting also touched on the topic of creating a free port in Vladivostok, without which, it seems, no more or less large meeting with the participation of the authorities can do without. According to Trutnev, the details of the future law are now being discussed, and the proposals sometimes sound “sci-fi” - for example, it is proposed to abolish all taxes and quotas on foreign labor and even customs on the territory of the free port. According to the authorities, with a similar approach to the case, other regions of the country may take offense at unfair treatment and selective preferences.
“We are absolutely sure that the law on the free port of Vladivostok creates a new environment here, new opportunities for doing business,” Yuri Trutnev comments. “There are expert assessments that indicate a doubling of the gross regional product within 5 years, that is, just explosive growth economy. Another conversation is that there are no such perfect laws, so now there are a lot of proposals on how to make it even better, some of them we will definitely take into account, and some, in my opinion, are a little bit sci-fi. Today, for example, the following proposals were heard: let’s abolish taxes altogether, let’s abolish quotas for foreign labor, and abolish customs. But then, excuse me, what will the rest of Russia say about such legislation? You can not do it this way. We will choose those solutions that represent the maximum conditions for the effective development of the economy of the Far East, Vladivostok. This project is not only for the development of Vladivostok, Vladivostok in this case is a gateway to the Far East, a sea gate, and not only a sea gate, because the airport is also being reconstructed there. And that's how we see it all. "
He clarified that today a number of Russian companies are already starting to do business in the DPRK, which serves as a concrete example of the development of mutually beneficial partnership, and not "speculative conclusions."
