Trade unions promote the initiative to expand the TOP on Kolyma to the size of the whole region

Mikhail Shmakov, chairman of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia, believes that creation of TORs in some districts of the Kolyma, it may not give the economic and production growth that the authorities of the Magadan region are counting on. This was discussed at his today's meeting with Governor Vladimir Pecheny, the press service of the regional government reports.

“Unfortunately, at present the law does not allow the creation of TORs throughout the Magadan region. I believe that Kolyma, due to its special position, existing infrastructural advantages over other regions, can be completely a territory of advanced development. It is certainly not so easy to do today, but I believe that it is possible to correct the legislation, and give such an opportunity for a certain period, say, 5-10 years, ”said Mikhail Shmakov.

He added that during the discussion in the Government of the law on TORs, he came out with an initiative to expand these territories to the size of individual subjects of the Russian Federation.

The Governor agreed with this opinion and noted that he raised this issue on meeting with Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.
