Kozhemyako applied to Medvedev, instructed a number of ministries, to speed up the coordination of the RF Government's decree on the creation of the SEZ "Predmostovaya"

Yesterday at the session of the Amur Legislative Assembly Head of the region Oleg Kozhemyako told about the agreements reached the day before at the working meeting with the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev.

The head of the region told the chairman of the Russian Government about the main directions of social and economic development of the region and asked to help solve problems that need to be considered at the level of the head of the Cabinet of Ministers of Russia, the press service of the Amur region informs.

The governor said that now with the support of the Ministry of Regional Development of the Russian Federation in the region, it is planned to launch a major infrastructure project for the construction of the 220 February-Rudnaya transmission line, which will allow 2016 thousand new workplaces, increase gold production by 1 tons and provide 5 mln. rubles of taxes annually.

The governor paid special attention to the agriculture of the region. On behalf of the Amur farmers, he thanked Dmitry Medvedev for his attention to the industry, for the care shown by the Government of the Russian Federation in eliminating the consequences of last year's flood, and for providing assistance to agriculture, which made it possible to keep the situation in the industry from a deep crisis. “Thanks to these measures, we have not only restored, but also provided a significant increase in new land and crops, having harvested 1 million tons of soybeans and more than 500 thousand tons of grain. This is 44% of all Russian soybeans. We haven’t had anything like this before, ”said the governor. According to him, the programs of the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia and joint work with Rosagroleasing played a large role in this, thanks to which the Amur agrarians received new harvesting and sowing equipment, brought in broodstock, built new elevators - only 4,8 billion rubles at 100% return.

All this created a solid foundation for the development of all types of meat and dairy cattle breeding, pig production. "We intend to keep the tempos for the coming years. The region is able to reach 2018 million tons of grain and soybeans by introducing fallow lands, build powerful grain drying and elevator complexes for grain storage, several dairy farms, "Oleg Kozhemyako said. The head of the region believes that this will make it possible to solve the problem of providing grain and food not only to the Amur Region, but also to the Far East. To do this, it is necessary to capitalize Rosagroleasing in the amount of 2,5 billion rubles annually for the Amur region, as the only agricultural region with reserve lands. The governor assured Dmitry Medevedev that the region guarantees not only the return of the resources provided, but also the solution of the task of import substitution and food security.

The governor asked to support other development projects in the Amur Region by financing. In particular, the bank protection project of the Amur River, which is being implemented in Blagoveshchensk since 2008. "5 plots were built from 8 planned, due to this the city was partially affected by the flood. In addition, 40 ha of land appeared in addition. Funds of the federal budget, received in 2013 year, are mastered. According to the FTP, only 75% of funding is provided. If the work does not continue, the water will flood a significant part of the alluvial territory, and in the event of a repeated flood, the unfinished facility will not provide security for the city, "Oleg Kozhemyako said.

The governor told about the project of creation of the pre-bridge SEZ. On the territory of the zone, it is necessary to create a transport and logistics center, assembly plants, enterprises for deep processing of Russian raw materials (cheap agricultural products, gas chemistry products). SEZ "Predmostovaya" will attract investment in the economy of the region, create new jobs, and give additional tax revenues to the budget. The head of the region asked Dmitry Medvedev to entrust the RF Ministry of Economic Development, the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Development of the Far East to speed up the coordination of the RF Government resolution on the creation of the SEZ "Predmostovaya".

Also, the governor raised the problem of the "last mile". As a result of the conclusion of direct contracts between JSC FGC and JSC Russian Railways, Oleg Kozhemyako said, Rusenergosbyt, which does not have the infrastructure and does not have an infrastructure, instead of OAO DRSK, a company serving the 110 KV network in the region and the entire Far East, became an intermediary. registered in the field. The losses of OAO DRSK for three years amounted to 9 billion rudders under the "last mile" agreements, of which in the Amur region - 6 billion rubles. Under the law, the region should provide for compensation in the regional budget or tariff decisions, but this would lead to a two-three-fold increase in the tariff for the population and business. There are no such funds in the budget, but based on the established judicial practice, these amounts are collected from the budgets of the regions. This completely paralyzes the budget system of the region. "Please instruct the Ministry of Finance to allocate 2014 billion rubles from the federal budget of the region in 2015 - 4,9 years to compensate for the falling incomes of territorial grid organizations," the head of Priamurye asked Dmitry Medvedev.

Also Oleg Kozhemyako touched upon the issue of budgetary credit. According to him, the region was in a difficult financial situation. To eliminate the consequences of flooding from the regional budget allocated more than 3 billion rubles, tax revenues only this year fell by more than 1,5 billion rubles. In 2014, the budget expenses will amount to 58,5 billion rubles, for 2015 the year is planned to total 35,8 billion rubles. The region went on the abolition of benefits, the introduction of the criterion of need, minimizing purchases, reducing other costs, but this did not straighten out the situation. The increase in tax revenues is possible only from 2018 year (gas pipeline and gas processing facilities, cosmodrome "Vostochny"). In addition, according to the governor, the most difficult issue is the resettlement from dilapidated emergency housing. Today in the region the plan established by the Foundation for Assistance to the Housing and Utilities Reforming in Resettlement of Citizens is being broken and the fulfillment of the instructions of the Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation on resettlement of citizens in the BAM zone. Oleg Kozhemyako asked Dmitry Medvedev to provide additional financial assistance to the Amur Region in the form of grants, subsidies or a budget loan in the amount of 2,3 billion rubles.
