Minskvostokrazvitiya: all state programs will pass obligatory coordination taking into account the needs of the Far East

Not a single state program and federal target program will be adopted without approval from the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, and the same applies to investment programs of state corporations. Oleg Skufinsky, Deputy Minister for Development of the Far East, told reporters at a round table meeting "Development strategy for the Far East and the Baikal region - a new scenario" in Khabarovsk.

“The federal ministries have been tasked to highlight in the programs a special section dedicated to the Far East in order to achieve the task set by the President of Russia for the priority development of the macro-region,” the deputy minister explained. He also said that the development of the Far East is considered monthly at meetings under the leadership of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

According to Oleg Skufinsky, in the draft Federal Target Program for the Development of the Far East until 2025, the emphasis is on projects that will allow, without diluting federal and regional resources, to concentrate on growth points. Today, the 23 project has been preselected. It is planned to attract 17 rubles of private investment per ruble of budget investments. At the same time, budget support will be received by projects selected by a specially created commission based on approved criteria that ensure maximum effect for the development of the region.

The Deputy Minister noted that the Ministry of Eastern Development is developing a close dialogue with regional teams, the expert and business community. “The more Far Easterners will understand the essence of the new approaches to the development of the region, the more chances to achieve the goals set - advanced development,” he said.
