Jewish Autonomous Region: Results - 2014
EastRussia.ru continues the cycle of publications "The Far East - Results of 2014". Expert materials are published on tangible achievements and shortcomings in the development of the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District. The results of the year in Sakhalin Oblast, Khabarovsk и Primorsky Territory, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Kamchatka Territory и Chukotka Autonomous District. Today's publication is devoted to Jewish autonomous region.
The Jewish Autonomous Region is traditionally considered to be one of the most economically weak and problematic regions of the FEFD. This year, for the first time after a long break, direct gubernatorial elections will be held there, and it is still not clear whether Alexander Vinnikov will retain his position or the president will appoint a new acting governor in February.
Evaluation of the effectiveness of regional authorities for 2013, carried out by the government of the Russian Federation, put the Jewish Autonomous Region in last place among all subjects of the federation. First of all, the region is pulling down the social sphere, it took the last place in its development, and the penultimate in the dynamics of development. As for economic indicators, in terms of the level of economic development, the Jewish Autonomous Region was rather average (47th place), but the dynamics of development was again assessed by the government extremely negatively (78th place). In 2014, the trends in the socio-economic development of the Jewish Autonomous Region looked extremely ambiguous. On the one hand, there was industrial growth. In January-August 2014, the Jewish Autonomous Region took second place after Chukotka, another lagging and unstable region of the Far Eastern Federal District, in terms of the dynamics of industrial production growth. On the other hand, negative trends were observed in agriculture. In the first half of 2014, the region became the leader in the decline in agricultural production in the Far Eastern Federal District (which is partly due to the flooding of 2013).
