Russian Island will be the first territory of advanced development

Russky Island, which now has the status of a special economic zone (SEZ), may become the country's first priority development area (TOR).

Yury Trutnev, the plenipotentiary of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District, announced the redevelopment of the Russian island zones. According to him, the corresponding bill is already being prepared for signing. The reason was the ineffectiveness of the project development in the framework of the SEZ. The plenipotentiary hopes that TOR will be more effective form. In the meantime, until the law is passed, the Primorye authorities will continue to work with the project of Russian Island within the framework of the SEZ.

"We will figure out in which shell it is more profitable to do it. The status of the territory of advanced development seems to me more effective, but now it still does not exist - the law on TORs has not yet been adopted," Yuri Trutnev said, answering journalists' questions. “We’ll just move forward. If we see that it is necessary to use the SEZ here, then we will work with this mechanism. If the special economic zone starts to slip, then, of course, it will be easier to work within the priority development area. "

On the eve of the Acting Governor of Primorye, Vladimir Miklushevsky said he intends to uphold the status of the special economic zone for the island, since he believes that in this format the territory can become a point of economic growth for the region. However, this position does not agree in the Ministry of Economic Development.

The Office earlier proposed early termination of the existence of a tourist and recreational zone in the Russian, as for three years in the SEZ no resident was registered, that is, the project did not have a single investor. To develop it only at the expense of the budget in the Ministry of Economic Development do not agree.
