More than 5,6 billion budget funds will be channeled to the new SEZ of Primorye

In fact, this will allow creating propulsion production in Russia and getting away from dependence on imports, ”noted Vladimir Miklushevsky.

On August 18, by the decision of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Dmitry Medvedev, a special economic zone of industrial production type was created in Vladivostok. The anchor investors of the SEZ are the Russian-Japanese company Mazda Sollers Manufacturing Rus LLC and the transport company Pacific Logistics LLC.

Key projects: increase of Mazda and SsangYong car factory capacities to 100 thousand cars per year and specialized terminal to 250 thousand containers per year, as well as placement of auto components in the SEZ.

More than 5,6 billion rubles of budget funds, including 5,3 billion from the federal budget, will be allocated to create the infrastructure of the SEZ. The SEZ regime will allow attracting more than 12 billion rubles of private investment, creating more than 2 thousands of new high-performance jobs.
