Alexander Latkin: Vladivostok is the eastern gate of the Russian Federation
Speaking before the Federal Assembly, President Vladimir Putin noted the visible rise of the Far East and pointed out the need for its further support for its large-scale development. To achieve this goal, a number of primary measures were proposed, one of which was the proposal of the status of a "free port" for Vladivostok with a facilitated customs regime, which now exists in Sevastopol.
Director of the Institute of International Business and Economics of VSUES Alexander Latkin in an interview with "Primorskaya Gazeta" responded to this proposal of the President. Alexander Latkin believes that in order to create a free port, first of all, it is necessary to establish transport links to avoid traffic jams with an increase in cargo turnover, as well as deepen the bottom of the coastal zone, which at the moment is not enough for the passage of large ships.
Vladimir Miklushevsky, the governor of Primorsky Krai, responding to the message of the President, noted that Vladivostok, because of its unique position in the region, was already a free port, the so-called port-ex-porto, exempt from customs payments.
