Alexander Galushka on measures for the comprehensive development of the Far East

In an interview with Ogonyok, Alexander Galushka, Minister for Development of the Far East, told the details of the proposal for a free lease of land in the amount of 1 hectare to every inhabitant of the Far East and those who want to come to live there.

The main goal of the project is to solve the key problem for the macroregion - the demographic one. "The population of the DFO now is just over six million, that is, about 5% of the total population of our country, and the expanses are giant - 36% of the territory of Russia" - the plenipotentiary of the President explained.

Alexander Galushka stressed that it was about allocating land for use exclusively to Russian citizens, and only reached the age of 18. "But it's not just about distribution: the land should be effectively used for housing construction, agriculture or forestry, to create a business", - the minister explained.

Minister said that 1 hectare of land - this is the bottom line of the proposal: "For example, for agriculture, the optimal area will be 3-5 hectares, and for" forestry farming "- not less than 30 hectares".

At the same time, allocation of land is not the only measure that is aimed at attracting people to the macroregion. According to Alexander Galushka, the draft concept of the demographic policy of the Far East for the period up to 2030 is being developed.

The minister also noted that the main hopes of the economic recovery of the macroregion are laid on the territory of advanced development, the law on which the president signed 29 December last year.
