In Primorye Under the leadership of Alexander Osipov, the First Deputy Minister for the Development of the Far East, regular public hearings were held on the draft law Free port of Vladivostok, the press service of the regional government reported.

It is also a “free skies” mechanism for airlines that will arrive at Vladivostok airport; the possibility of using a single tax by the residents of the Free Port, which significantly simplifies the laboriousness of accounting and tax operations. The First Deputy Minister added that the Free Port regime also means the application of tax incentives for those who invest in investment projects related to the development of the Free Port territory. This is a unified governing body, which also includes the Public Council, the main purpose of which is to remove interdepartmental contradictions and significantly speed up the process of making fundamental decisions related to the development of territories.

Vice-president of the Chamber of Lawyers of the region Vladimir Melnikov added that the Public Chamber of Primorye is ready for its part to carry out continuous monitoring of the implementation of the law

In general, as noted by the meeting participants, the bill was received positively. Representatives of the Public Chamber were able to get answers to all questions they asked about the draft law.
