The regiment of TORs arrived

EastRussia sums up the meeting of the subcommittee on investment projects in the Far East

The regiment of TORs arrived
Special project TORA and Free Port

The subcommittee on investment projects in the Far East and the Baikal region of the government commission on socio-economic development, chaired by the plenipotentiary representative of the Far East Federal District Yuri Trutnev, in Vladivostok today approved six more projects of advanced development territories (TOR) to be created in the Far East.

Leading development

The list of "lucky beggars" included agricultural TOR "Belogorsk" in the Amur region, "Kamchatka", "Mikhailovsky" in Primorye, "Beringovsky" and industrial park "Kangalassy". The questions arose only at 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 logistic area of ​​857,3 ha implies 128,9 billion rubles of private investment and the creation of 1530 new jobs.

"All are approved, the only thing on the project" Predmost "in the Amur region arose a discussion connected with the fact that one of the sites (not the entire territory of advanced development, but one of the sites) is connected with the construction of the bridge, and in the construction of the bridge are not determined to the end sources of financing. It turns out that we can start the project, according to which the state does not provide the necessary conditions, this is unacceptable. We have decided that in general we will create TOPs in the Amur Region, but at one stage the decision is made today, and on the second site we will take a decision before the meeting of the government. Once again we will consult, but taking into account the clarification of the circumstances, how much the bridge affects the implementation of this project, when funding will be provided. The rest of all decisions have been made, "Yury Trutnev commented on the situation.

The commission approved the remaining sites, and after the meeting even praised that they are all promising and are aimed at revealing the unique potential of each of the regions. "All projects are different, most importantly, 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 sufficiently flexible envelope of TORs, working with different potentials - sometimes it is resource, sometimes it is transitory, sometimes it is agricultural, in other cases it is tourist. But we see that the envelope of the territory of advanced development makes this potential possible to open, and, therefore, to develop the Far East, "the Minister for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka, shared his opinion.

From the point of view of implementation, the project turned out to be industrial-oriented specialists in the industrial-oriented area “Kangalassa” with an area of ​​16,9 ha, which implies 1,11 billion rubles in private and 0,2 billion rubles in budget investments, and in return may give 350 new jobs. “This is a rather complicated area of ​​advanced development, the projects are small, there are many of them, they are diversified. On the one hand, of course, it’s more convenient to deal with 1-2 with large, understandable, funded projects. On the other hand, there are so many different small enterprises there that, if they are implemented, they will definitely bring a lot of benefit to the Yakut land. In addition, there is a good correct position of the governor. He is ready to bear full responsibility for the fact that all projects will be implemented, ”commented the project Trutnev.


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 work is very big and in a very short time. Usually such forums are prepared for the year, we have three months left, "Trutnev said. "Over the past three months, we must contact the whole world, with the whole of the Asia-Pacific region, to invite guests with whom we will continue to work, who are interested in working in the Far East. We are now discussing the construction of the forum. We do not want to make a forum for those cliches that already exist, in Russia and in the world there are many forums, each of them occupied its niche; We want the Far Eastern forum also to have its own sound and niche. For example, we talked today about some specialization of the forum, we talked about what might not be quite right when we (and the forum will be permanent) every year we will hold it, and if we every year will discuss everything, after some amount Time we will start repeating the same thing. And if we take a specialization, relatively speaking, first a marine theme, then a topic of mining, then we'll touch upon some other questions, then we are sure that it will be a highly professional discussion that we will be able to gather the right audience and will not repeat ourselves , It will be interesting each time. "

Participants touched upon the topic and the creation of a free port in Vladivostok, without which, it seems, no more or less large meeting with the participation of the authorities. According to Trutnev, 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 at the territory of the Freeport. According to the authorities, with such an approach to the case, other regions of the country may be offended by unfair treatment and selective preferences.

"We are absolutely sure that the law on the free port of Vladivostok creates here a new environment, new opportunities for doing business," commented Yury Trutnev. "There are expert assessments that talk about doubling the gross regional product for 5 years, that is, just explosive growth Economy. Another conversation is that there are no such perfect laws, so now there are so many suggestions how to do it even better, some of them we will necessarily take into account, and some, in my opinion, are a bit sci-fi. Here today, for example, such proposals sounded: let's even cancel all taxes, let's cancel quotas for foreign labor, customs will be canceled. But then, excuse me, what else 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 has a character not only for the development of Vladivostok, Vladivostok in this case - the gate to the Far East, the sea gate, and not only the sea, because there is also the airport being reconstructed. And that's how we see it all. "

Taking this opportunity, journalists could not resist asking Alexander Galushka about his recent visit to North Korea. He said that the countries will build relations based on the sending of mutual benefits. As an example, he brought the railway line Khasan-Rajin. "Relations will be built on a mutually beneficial basis, based on economically rational projects that are of interest to both countries. A practical example of such a project today is the Hasan-Rajin project, a railway that has already earned money, said Alexander Galushka. - Since the beginning of the year, about 400 thousand tons of coal have been transported, the plans are that at least 1,5 million tons of coal will be transported over this year by the end of the year, an economically advantageous shoulder is created within it, the project is rational, beneficial for all parties. We have formed business councils, the Russia-North Korea business council on the basis of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and for the first time in the history of the DPRK the DPRK-Russia business council was formed. It unites enterprises engaged primarily in foreign economic activities in the DPRK and, interestingly, today we held a joint meeting of these two councils in Pyongyang, there is mutual interest, there are mutual topics, there are mutual crossings. "

He specified that today a number of Russian companies are already starting to conduct business in the DPRK, which is a concrete example of developing a mutually beneficial partnership, rather than "speculative conclusions."
