Complex of anti-recessionary measures of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) for 2015 year

In Primorye, the meeting of the Plenipotentiary Representative of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev with the heads of the subjects of the Far East was held. The subject of the meeting were anti-crisis measures implemented in the regions of the Far East.

On the anti-crisis measures implemented in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) in 2015, EastRussia was told in the press service of the region.

Undoubtedly, like the rest of the country, Yakutia is also affected by the sanctions of Western countries, the consequences of the fall in world oil prices, rising prices and a shortage of credit resources.

Yakutia is the largest in area, besides the northern region of the country with difficult natural and climatic conditions. Therefore, many negative factors of the general economic situation affect us much more sharply. In particular, we forecast a serious rise in the cost of the Northern delivery to the Arctic and hard-to-reach areas.

In this regard, work has been launched in the country to monitor the current situation and develop a set of measures to ensure stability in the region. To coordinate this activity, an Interdepartmental Commission has been set up to monitor the financial and economic status of organizations.

The composition of this commission formed working groups in five main areas:

1.Economy, financial sector, industry;

2.Construction, housing and utilities and energy; 3.Transport and life support;

4.Agro-industrial complex and trade;

5.Social protection and employment of the population.

Also in the government of Yakutia a draft of the Set of measures for ensuring production and financial sustainability was developed. The measures provide for tax monitoring of enterprises, monitoring of financial and economic activities of enterprises and preparation of proposals for ensuring their sustainable activity, monitoring interest rates of credit resources, transferring loans and leasing payments in foreign currency to the national currency of the Russian Federation, and operational monitoring of the labor market situation.

It is planned to provide such government support measures as subsidizing interest rates, providing state guarantees, and budgetary credits. In addition, it is planned to introduce a number of initiatives at the federal level on measures of state support.

As for measures to combat unemployment, a substantial part of them presupposes economic activity and mobility of the able-bodied part of the population of the republic. So 2015 year is declared in Yakutia the Year of the businessman. Those Yakut people who decide to do their own business, the government of the republic intends to provide additional material, methodological and organizational support. The developed package of measures to support small and medium-sized businesses concerns all areas of entrepreneurial activity. Including agriculture, where new opportunities and prospects open up for domestic agricultural producers.

The implementation of large investment projects will also contribute to employment of the population. For example, in Yakutia, work has already begun on the development of the Chayandinskoye oil and gas condensate field and the construction of the Power of Siberia gas trunkline. In addition, this year EVRAZ plans to begin construction of the Timir mining and metallurgical plant in the south of the republic. These are all jobs, an opportunity to learn a new profession and make a living.

Thanks to the measures taken with the support of the federal center, Yakutia has long ceased to be a single-industry region. Nowadays, not only diamond mining, but also coal, oil and gas and gold mining industries are developed in the republic. Therefore, even in times of crisis, the leadership of Yakutia is counting on economic growth, albeit not as big as we would like, but still, EastRussia was told in the press service of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).
