Expert: "The Eastern polygon will give Yakutia the opportunity to process natural resources"

In an interview with EastRussia.ru, the head of the Center for Economic Research of the Institute of Globalization and Social Movements (IGSO) Vasily Koltashov expressed the opinion that the Eastern Polygon project could stimulate Russian production in the Far East.

According to him, “the regions of the south of the Far East will benefit from the project. Primorye, Southern Siberia - originally. "

"The future will depend on the development of the railroad system of rail traffic. Yakutia - at some point, because with the expansion of railways are becoming more profitable to develop many natural resources. It is impossible to lead the extraction of iron ore in the northern regions, transporting products on airplanes. It is insanely expensive, irrational, uncompetitive. With the development of the network of railways, it becomes possible to extract natural resources very profitably, and processing can be organized on the spot, "the expert said.

He stressed that "the project" Eastern polygon "will connect both the transit movement of goods, and the movement of local goods, and an increase in turnover for Russian Railways, and an increase in demand for the Russian market." "Of course, I do not think that one" Eastern polygon "can pull out the Russian economy. He must rely on a number of additional measures from the Russian government, "- said in an interview with EastRussia.ru V. Koltashov.
