Governor of Kamchatka Territory hopes for early approval of the draft law on TORs

The Governor of the Kamchatka Territory, Vladimir Ilyukhin, hopes for the early approval by the State Duma of the draft law on territories for advanced development (TOPs). In an interview with EastRussia, he stressed that it depends on it how quickly it will be possible to launch the mechanism of outstripping development in the regions.

“I would like to note that such a law is being adopted for the first time in the country and of course, there are still many questions to it, although we must pay tribute to the Ministry for the Development of the Far East, which, in constant contact with the subjects, has been finalizing it. The main thing now is a concept that meets the strategic interests of the Far East and the entire country. I really hope for the early adoption of the bill in the State Duma, it depends on how quickly we can launch the mechanism for the advanced development of our territories, ”said the head of the Kamchatka Territory.

He is sure that the law on TORs will provide real tools for solving the problem of attracting investors to the Far East. That is why "Kamchatka is waiting for the adoption of the law," stressed Vladimir Ilyukhin.

In particular, the project to create a TOP "Kamchatka" includes two blocks: the port-industrial and tourist-recreational ones. Firstly, its implementation, according to the governor, will "create a strong port area and begin to actively use the northern sea route," which will significantly expand the opportunities for Kamchatka fishing industry to deliver products to the domestic market, and will allow logistics with the APR countries and provide export mined in the province of minerals. Secondly, the creation of the TOP will allow to give impetus to the development of tourism in the province. "We have a lot of interesting projects for investors, but without state support and without special preferences, it's quite difficult to start a business in the region. The law on TORs will create the necessary conditions, interest it, "the governor explained.

"The project of creating a TOP in the province is ready and detailed. Now we are working on creating the necessary port infrastructure, which requires mandatory state participation. We have investors ready to enter the project, both in terms of the development of the port and the tourist destination, "said Vladimir Ilyukhin. Nevertheless, until the law is passed, "we can not talk about specific things, about the system of benefits and preferences for business," he summed up.
