EastRussia.Ru presents a weekly newsletter on the events in the Far Eastern Federal District

Information and analytical agency "East of Russia" (EastRussia.Ru) presents a weekly information and analytical bulletin "The Far East: events, analytics, trends".

The bulletin contains the most interesting and relevant information over the past week on several topics: the influence of the federal center policy on the socio-economic and socio-political situation in the Far East, the socio-political situation in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, FIG activities in the Far East, the information field of the Far East.

Thus, the most important issue at the federal level remains the development of legislation to create conditions for accelerated socio-economic development of the Far East. The events of the past week revealed a departmental conflict in the legislative sphere between the Ministry of Economic Development and the Ministry of Economic Development. The draft law on territories for advanced development (TOP), developed in the last months of the Minsk region, is not the only one of its kind. Another bill - in the form of amendments to the current law on special economic zones (SEZ) is being developed by the Ministry of Economy. Thus, at the discussion in the government there are two normative legal acts, which partially supplement, and partly contradict one another. Nevertheless, both projects have their drawbacks: for the implementation of the TOR project, Minvostokrazvitiya does not have enough resources, and the practice of the SEZ in the Far East has proved ineffective.

A major platform for discussing regional initiatives proposed by the federal center was the meeting of the Parliamentary Association of the Far East and Transbaikalia. It took place in Yakutia, attended by federal officials and representatives of the parliaments of eleven regions.

The largest regional event occurred in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), where Egor Borisov reported to the deputies of the State Assembly (Il Tumen) on the results of the activities of the executive bodies.

The problem of the effectiveness of public chambers and councils is quite acute in the Sakhalin Region and the Khabarovsk Territory. Last week, members of the Public Council under the city administration were approved in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, with the initiative to create it was made by acting mayor Sergei Nadsadin.

Many events of the past week touched upon the development of the transport infrastructure of the macro-region. The most ambitious project, which was discussed at the parliamentary hearings in Moscow, was the reconstruction of the Baikal-Amur and Trans-Siberian highways. Corruption scandals around the activities of officials in connection with the abuse of powers, as well as the resignation of major officials in several regions, remain relevant in the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District and over the past week.
