Duma of Khabarovsk Territory approved the change of time zone

The Khabarovsk Territory may become an hour closer to Moscow - the Legislative Duma of the Territory approved the proposal of the parliament and the governor to transfer the territory of the region from the eighth time zone to the seventh, the press service of the Duma reports.

The initiators of the proposal are confident that the transition from the eighth time zone to the seventh will reduce the difference between local and Moscow time by one hour, which will allow Khabarovsk residents to expand official, business and personal contacts with their Western colleagues and relatives. “It will also increase the efficiency and effectiveness of interaction between the regional government bodies and the federal executive and legislative bodies,” stressed Alexander Kupryakov, First Deputy Minister of Economic Development and Foreign Relations.

Following the meeting, the deputies decided to recommend to the Legislative Duma to approve the joint proposal of the Legislative Duma of Khabarovsk Krai Governor and the transfer of the region from the eighth time zone in the seventh.

The decision on the date of transfer of the clock will be taken later.
