The MED proposes early termination of the existence of two SEZs

The Ministry of Economic Development proposes to prematurely terminate the existence of two special economic zones / SEZ /: the port type - on the territory of the Murmansk region and the tourist-recreational type - on the territory of Russian Island. The texts of the relevant draft resolutions are posted on a single portal of legal information.

In accordance with the Law on the Special Economic Zone, it is possible to terminate the existence of a special economic zone ahead of time if within a period of three years from the date of creation no agreements on the implementation (maintenance) of activities in the Special Economic Zone have been concluded.

As noted in the explanatory note to the draft resolution "On the early termination of the existence of a special economic zone of a port type on the territory of the Murmansk region", since the formation of this SEZ, a concept for the creation and development of the zone, a project for the planning of the territory of the SEZ PT, including a plan of arrangement and appropriate material and technical equipment of the SEZ PT and the adjacent territory (the first stage), and work was also carried out to formalize land and property relations. 56,05 million rubles were spent on these works from the regional budget.

At the same time, there was no interest in implementing projects by private investors, residents in the SEZ PT were not registered.

As for the SEZ of tourist-recreational type on the territory of Russian Island, then, as noted in the explanatory note to the relevant draft resolution, over the time since the formation of this SEZ, a concept of zone development has been developed, work has been done on the registration of land and property relations. Funding for these works at the expense of the federal budget was not made.

At the same time, there was no interest in implementing projects by private investors, residents in the SEZ TRT are not registered.

The Ministry of Economic Development proposes to develop these two sites in a different format, outside the SEZ institute, using public-private partnership mechanisms.

The available materials and projects will be transferred to regional administrations for the preparation of a concept for the development and planning of these territories.

The SEZ in the Murmansk region was created in order to stabilize the current socio-economic situation and further development of the region, the realization of the national interests of the Russian Federation in the Arctic. In addition, its creation was caused by the need to develop the mineral and aquatic biological resources of the Arctic shelf, the modernization of the transport system of the Russian Federation with equal integration into international transport corridors, and the development of the Northern Sea Route.

The SEZ in Primorsky Krai was created to attract both Russian and foreign investments in the development of the tourist and recreational potential of Russky Island. Also, its creation was due to the need to improve the efficiency of budget spending on the creation of infrastructure facilities built for the APEC summit - 2012.

Certain external infrastructure facilities created under the subprogram "Development of Vladivostok as a center of international cooperation in the Asia-Pacific region" of the federal target program "Economic and social development of the Far East and Transbaikalia for the period up to 2013" were also supposed to be used for the functioning of the SEZ tourist -recreational type.

Creation of additional infrastructure was planned to be implemented at the expense of the budget of the Primorsky Krai, the local budget and the extrabudgetary sources attracted.
