President displeased with the work of the Government on the development of the Far East

Today, at a meeting of the presidential Commission for monitoring the achievement of target indicators of Russia's socio-economic development, President Vladimir Putin called on the government to be more active in developing the Far East. In particular, he drew attention to the fact that there is still no list of priority investment projects and even the criteria for their selection have not been approved.

"A new state program for 2014-2025 has been approved, special tax incentives have been created to attract investors to the Far East and to certain regions of Siberia. However, there is still no list of priority investment projects for the development of territories in the Far East and Transbaikalia, even the selection criteria for such projects, "Putin said

The President drew attention to the fact that the new state program also does not reflect a number of infrastructure elements, including the construction of roads.

"Preferential terms of mortgage lending for residents of the Far East have not been developed. And this is in the face of the ongoing outflow of population and depopulation of this region. The target program" Social and economic development of the Kuril Islands for 2016-2025 is not ready, "Putin added.

“We all say that this (the development of the Far East. - ER) is a priority area, but frankly speaking, things are moving very slowly here, ”the President of Russia said.
