The future contribution of Chukotka to the Northern Sea Route turnover was estimated at three million tons per year. This indicator is planned to be achieved at the expense of copper concentrate from Baimsky GOK, Pyrkakay tin and Beringovsky coal.

According to the press service of the government of Chukotka, the governor of the region Roman Kopin told about this at a meeting on the development of the Northern Sea Route, which was chaired by the head of the Russian government, Mikhail Mishustin. Kopin also noted that the seaports of Pevek and Beringovsky will be modernized to increase the load, and in the port of Providence it is necessary to carefully work out a strategy and find a place in the NSR.

As part of improving transport accessibility until 2024, 15 airports will be reconstructed in the Arctic - seven of them in Chukotka: Pevek, Beringovsky, Keperveem, Markovo, Bay of the Cross, Lawrence and Provideniya. The governor called Chukotka a strategic region for the Northern Sea Route.

One of the key issues that was discussed during Mikhail Mishustin's visit to the Okrug in August was the provision of stable communications throughout the Arctic waters. In this regard, the district was tasked with connecting to broadband internet by 2022. At the first stage, it will become available to 20 thousand residents of Anadyr and the Coal Mines. The prime minister called the communication the most important aspect for Chukotka.
