Miklushevsky does not agree with the proposal of the Ministry of Economic Development to close the SEZ on Russky Island

Primorye head Vladimir Miklushevsky intends to defend the preservation of the special status of the island of Russian, the press service of the governor said.

Vladimir Miklushevsky does not agree with the proposal of the Ministry of Economic Development to close the tourist and recreational special economic zone on Russky Island in Vladivostok.

Earlier, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev drew the Ministry's attention to the fact that the proposal of the federal agency to close part of the tourist and recreational areas should be weighed and coordinated.

“Let's weigh everything, we will focus on the result. If, for one reason or another, something needs to be corrected, I am ready to do it. But on the other hand, it is necessary for one instrument to work before closing any others, ”the prime minister said.

The head of Primorye, Vladimir Miklushevsky, also categorically disagrees with such a proposal from the federal department and intends to defend the creation of a special economic zone on Russian island.

"The head of Primorye believes that on the Russian island today there are all conditions for the territory to become a new point of growth in the region's economy. And the authorities of Primorye do not support the position of the Ministry of Economic Development to "exclude" this ambitious economic project. Moreover, this decision was made without taking into account the opinion of the regional authorities, which is unacceptable, "the spokesman told the position of the head of the region on this issue.

“The main difficulty is the availability of land. Until now, the military lands on Russky Island have not been involved in civilian circulation. This means that the Primorye Administration cannot fully engage in the search for investors, develop the concept of the SEZ, prepare a variant of the territory planning, "he stressed.

According to Aleksey Starichkov, director of the department of international cooperation and tourism development in Primorsky Krai, a special economic zone of tourist and recreational type on Russky Island today is of some interest in Russian and foreign business circles.
