The Fund for the Development of the Far East should soon earn - Galushka

"The Fund for the Development of the Far East and the Baikal Region, founded by Vnesheconombank, should soon begin real work," the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, Alexander Galushka, quotes.

At the end of April of this year, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, during a meeting of the legal commission on the socio-economic development of the Far East, instructed the government and VEB to decide on the normal functioning of the fund within a month.

“We will not liquidate it, because we need such an instrument. There are subjective reasons and we need to understand them, but the main thing is that the decision-making mechanism that exists, even for a relatively small amount of money put into the fund, does not work. proposals within a month from the government and VEB. If there are no such proposals, I will make a decision myself, but then I will have to remove everyone who has dealt with this so far from this area of ​​work, "the prime minister said at the time.

According to Alexander Galushka - there are two main reasons that billion of rubles pledged to the fund 15 are not used.

"The reason lies in the way this fund operates - there is a corresponding instruction of the Ministry of Finance, which is extremely unsuitable for practical work. This is the first reason. And the second reason is the discrepancy between the interests of Vnesheconombank as a whole and the development tasks of the Far East, which is submerged in Vnesheconombank as one of the the particulars he deals with, "the minister said.

"At the moment, we have a situation when a fund exists for the third year that has not completed a single transaction, has not invested a penny or a ruble in the development of the Far East. I can say that for our part, with Yuri Petrovich Trutnev, we raised this problem with the Prime Minister. practically from the beginning of our work. There is a corresponding order from Dmitry Medvedev, which is being implemented today, "said the head of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East.
