Trutnev: the creation of a shipbuilding cluster in the Far East is a priority in cooperation with South Korean Daewoo Shipbuilding

Yuri Trutnev, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District, held important negotiations with the South Korean shipbuilding company Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering.

Today Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering is a leader in shipbuilding, and has been working with Russia for a long time. In 2013, during the visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to South Korea, the partners decided to create a shipbuilding cluster in the Far East, at the same time a Memorandum of Cooperation was signed between Rosneft and Daewoo Shipping.

However, unfortunately, as Yuri Trutnev notes, the work is progressing very slowly so far: there are no deadlines or the promised project. We are talking about the creation of shipbuilding facilities at the Zvezda enterprise.

As Interfax writes, today there were quite tough negotiations with colleagues. Representatives of the South Korean shipbuilding company expressed satisfaction with the implementation of Russian orders for the construction of a gas carrier for the Yamal LNG project, however, the Deputy Prime Minister was forced to clarify the Russian position on the delay in the construction of ships in the Far East, since this issue represents key interests of Russia in cooperation with Daewoo Shipbuilding ...

The outcome of the negotiations was the decision to establish a joint working group with Daewoo Shipbuilding to create a roadmap for the company in Russia. The given working group within two months should create a road map of work of the company in Russia with concrete terms and capacities.
