The Jewish Autonomous Region will cooperate with the World Bank on local issues.

Vrio Governor Jewish autonomous region Alexander Levintal supported the World Bank’s proposal to work with the region in the direction of developing the activity of municipalities in solving problems that local budgets are not able to solve. Projects for the development of local initiatives involve the active involvement of residents of specific municipalities in their implementation, the press service of the regional government reports.

Levintal received Project Manager for the support of local initiatives of the Moscow office of the World Bank Ivan Shulga. According to representatives of the bank, the Far East is regarded as a fairly promising territory from among those where it is necessary to work on raising the standard of living of the population, and solving local problems requires additional sources of funding, involving the residents themselves. Due to its compactness, the Jewish Autonomous Region can become a unique platform for the implementation of various projects in municipalities that contribute to improving the infrastructure of human settlements and solving local issues.

“It seems to me that the poorer the region, the more actively such programs should be introduced and implemented. They really give people the opportunity to feel that they themselves are able to do something. It is necessary to launch a program that will unite resources, "tie" extra-budgetary sources of funding, funds of the population to this and all this in order to obtain a specific result, which is very important for many settlements of the region "noted Alexander Levintal.

At the moment, the World Bank in the Russian Federation already supports a number of projects being implemented on the territory of the Khabarovsk Territory and, according to representatives of the bank, quite successfully.
