Income receipts to the Sakhalin Oblast budget increased by 82% - Khoroshavin

Compared to last year's figures, the receipt of tax and non-tax revenues in the consolidated budget increased by more than 82%. Positive dynamics of growth is observed in the oil and gas and fuel and energy sectors of the region. On Sakhalin and Kuril Islands, the production of timber, many types of agricultural and food products has increased.

This was stated by the governor during the discussion at today's meeting of the regional government on the issue of the results of the socio-economic development of the island region in January-September 2014 and forecasting the situation for 2015-2017.

According to Alexander Horoshavin, the positive results achieved in general testify to an effective regional policy, as well as to the sustainable development of the oil and gas complex, even in the context of sectoral restrictions imposed on our country.

In the Sakhalin Oblast, the May Decrees of the President of the Russian Federation are being implemented in accordance with the planned indicators, and in a number of areas - ahead of schedule (increasing wages for certain categories of public sector employees, eliminating the need for preschool institutions for children aged 3 to 7 years).

Formulating the tasks for the near-term period, with reference to the development of the production sphere in the region, the governor noted that it is necessary to strive to increase the share of Sakhalin products in the domestic and foreign markets, to use the current situation in Russia for the benefit of the region, which provided additional stimulus and opportunities for the development of local production.

- Special attention should be paid to the issues of import substitution. In the context of the introduction of sectoral sanctions, this moment should become an incentive for us to solve the tasks of developing regional production, especially in the food sector. Financial support for a business, in terms of reducing its costs, is one part of the task. The second, no less important, and in many ways, the most demanded one is the reduction of the administrative burden on the business, the creation of favorable conditions for its development. Including by creating a favorable investment climate, - said Alexander Khoroshavin.

He added that the regional authorities need to work on optimization, unification, cheaper procedures in the implementation of investment projects on the territory of Sakhalin and the Kuriles, to introduce new tools to stimulate investment.

- Colleagues, economic development, increasing the investment potential of the Sakhalin Oblast, all these are certainly important things. But they are only mechanisms for fulfilling our main task - improving the quality of life of Sakhalin and Kuril residents. Let's put this task at the forefront, "said the governor.
