Senator Vyacheslav Shtyrov proposed to define the concept of "Far East"

Senator Vyacheslav Shtyrov made specific proposals on the development of the Far East to the government of the Russian Federation during the next meeting of the Federation Council, according to the website of the government of Yakutia. At the government hour, the issue of long-term socio-economic development of the Far East and the Baikal region was considered.

Vyacheslav Shtyrov proposed to define the very concept of the “Far East”, since a contradiction arose between what the Far East is and what the Far East and the Baikal region are. The second is to develop a new state program for the development of the Far East. The third is to ensure the priority of the Far East in all federal departmental programs.

The senator noted that positive changes are taking place in the Far East in the last year. "And the issue is not only that the consequences of the flood have been eliminated or that there are good indicators of socio-economic development in comparison with other federal districts, but the question is that the approaches to the development of the Far East are changing in a positive way", - said Vyacheslav Shtyrov. Large-scale projects of a nationwide scale are being implemented in the macro-region, such as Power of Siberia, the Elga coal deposit, and their number is expanding, and projects based on the principles of public-private partnership have begun. "There is one more class of projects that will be localized in TOSER, there will be large enterprises and enterprises for medium and small businesses. It turns out such an integrated approach that considers all economic niches for different groups of enterprises. This is very good, this is a turning point, generally speaking, in understanding how the Far East should be developed. And further, at the next stage, we obviously will proceed to the formation of special belts for the development of the Far East ", - said the senator.

Shtyrov also spoke in favor of the adoption of the federal law "On the territories of advanced socio-economic development and other measures of state support for the regions of the Far East" and the elaboration of a public-private partnership mechanism for the implementation of selected projects.

"As for our law on the Far East, we have no contradiction with the TACER law. TOSER is a special case that will be part of our more general law. The working group continues work on the draft law "On special conditions for the accelerated development of the Far East and the Baikal region". Now he is on legal examination, in the near future the working group will submit the draft law to the Council of Federation ", - concluded the senator.
