Specialization of TOP should become high technologies - Medvedev

“We need to stimulate development where there is none, where there is still no source of income. Now we are discussing a new type of special tax regimes and stimulation of industrial development within the framework of the so-called priority development areas. This bill is being prepared primarily for the Far East, but subsequently will be applied everywhere. This is a somewhat different regime than, say, the regime of a free trade zone, a special economic zone. This law has also been practically prepared, ”Dmitry Medvedev said in an interview with the Vedomosti newspaper.

The Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation also specified that the specialization of such territories should be high technologies: "Anything, the main thing is that it develops our technological potential."

The Ministry of Eastern Development, together with other Ministries, has prepared a draft law on TOR, which will be submitted to the State Duma for consideration at the autumn session. Also, the Ministry has determined 14 priority sites for the creation of priority development areas. According to expert forecasts, over the next 10 years, the creation of TOR can give the Far East 600 billion rubles of investments and more than 35 thousands of new jobs, the press service of the Ministry of Oriental Development reports.
