Exclusively from EastRussia.Ru: "The Far East: events, analytics, trends"

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

The final stage includes the solution of the main task of the federal authorities in recent months - the development of legislation to create conditions for the accelerated socio-economic development of the Far East through the new Institute of ToR. Last week, the Ministry for the Development of the Far East presented for discussion the draft law “On the territories of advanced socio-economic development and other measures of state support for the regions of the Far East”, which defines a preferential treatment for entrepreneurs in the Torahs in the Far Eastern regions.

Among the most important and controversial issues are the differences between TOP and SEZ and localization of TOP. In the future, the draft law will be finalized taking into account comments regarding the definition of criteria for distinguishing advanced development territories from special economic zones and criteria for the location of TORs. It is also necessary to determine the list of powers of the governing bodies of the territories of advanced socio-economic development. It should be noted that it was against this background that the creation of new SEZs in the Far East, as well as the expansion of the possibilities of the Magadan SEZ, was discussed.

An important event was also the launch of the National Rating of Investment Attractiveness of Regions in the Far East, which the President of Russia said during his last Address to the Federal Assembly. Among the 22 pilot regions of the country where the project is being implemented, there are three subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District: Primorsky and Khabarovsk Territories, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). In the central part of the country the national rating started earlier, now it is launched in the Far East, the survey operator for regional entrepreneurs is the All-Russian Center for the Study of Public Opinion (VCIOM). According to the head of the Far Eastern office of the ASI, Olga Kurilova, such an assessment should motivate the executive authorities to further improve the investment climate. In addition, the rating should help to identify problems and find ways to eliminate them, as well as determine the best practices of the regions and scale them throughout the Russian Federation. Results of the rating in the pilot regions should be received in May. After their processing and analysis, the rating experience will be extended to all other regions, and the rating will become annual.
