Projects at TOR sites will be able to rely on subsidies for electricity payments - Trutnev

Projects implemented at the TOP sites will be able to rely on subsidies for electricity payments. This was said by the Deputy Prime Minister, the presidential envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District Yury Trutnev at a meeting with the largest investors of the macro-region projects. The meeting, which was held in the Government House in Moscow, was also attended by the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka.

“We know how much electricity really costs in the Far East, especially in isolated areas. A mechanism for subsidizing the cost of electricity from tax revenues of future periods is now being considered. We proceed from the assumption that if we launch new projects, they will bring taxes to the budget. If they bring taxes, then why not share part of these future tax revenues to reduce the cost of electricity, - the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East reports the words of Yuri Trutnev. The Deputy Prime Minister stressed that it is not planned to create any single matrix, therefore, specific conditions need to be discussed for each specific project.

Yuri Trutnev also noted that work is now underway to "deploy all sectoral programs of Russian ministries to the Far East, as a priority region." According to him, there are situations when the initial parameters of sectoral programs take into account the special status of the Far East, but subsequently change not in favor of the Far East region.

The meeting also discussed the work of the Far East and Transbaikalia Development Fund. According to the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East, the Fund is capitalized by 15 billion rubles and by the end of 2015 it plans to invest half of these funds in infrastructure projects in the Far East. It is planned that the Fund will attract for every ruble of public funds - up to 5 rubles of private investment in model projects.

According to the head of the Ministry of Eastern Development, TOR should earn from the beginning of 2015 of the year: 14 sites were selected for their creation, where 18 investment projects can be implemented. In the future, they are able to attract 1 trillion rubles of investment.
