Nikolai Pegin: "This is the first real contribution to the development of the Far East"

General Director of OJSC "Corporation for the Development of the Kamchatka Territory" Nikolay Pegin expressed opinion, that "TOP is today one of the important tools for the development of the Far Eastern territories, including Kamchatka."

“However, even for individual Far Eastern countries, the launch of even individual projects can have the maximum effect. This is a direct effect from the project implementation, and numerous multi-effects that it will generate, ”he said.

According to him, the most relevant for Kamchatka is "the creation of a multifunctional port-hub with an industrial-production zone in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky".

“The implementation of this project will contribute to a significant increase in the capacity of the Northern Sea Route, reducing the load on the Trans-Siberian Railway. In the future, a real alternative to the traditional route from Asia to Europe through the Suez and Panama Canals can be made. The benefits from the implementation of this project are not only in income from ship escorts, bunkering, warehousing, etc. The presence of the port will give impetus to the revival of ship repair and service services for vessels, the further development of fisheries, fish processing, the most important areas of the regional economy, will increase the attendance of the region, and therefore will become the basis for the development of the hospitality industry and the tourist and recreational area of the cluster “Paratunka” is considered as one of the elements of TOR), ”shared N. Pegin.

The expert is confident that, despite the fact that “it is difficult to suggest concrete results of the practical implementation of the Law on Tor, there is every reason to believe that if the draft Tor is sufficiently developed at the regional level and its choice was determined not by personal preferences, but the logic of the development of the territory, the support of such a “locale” will become the driver of the development of the entire subject of the federation, the basis for raising the standard of living of the population, for Russia's realization of its Eurasian role in world history. ”
