In Yakutia, developed a comprehensive program of development of the Arctic and northern territories

Valery Maksimov, Minister of Economy of Yakutia, said that a draft comprehensive program was developed for the socio-economic development of the Arctic and northern regions of Yakutia before 2020, and will soon be presented to the government of the republic.

Among the main problems of the territory are the underdevelopment of transport infrastructure, the deterioration of communal systems, the reduction in the number and low incomes of the population, the decline of traditional nature management, the unresolved environmental problems. To address them, the new document provides for the integrated development of traditional sectors of the North, including through support of small and medium-sized businesses, the revival of the Northern Sea Route, and the beginning of the development of mineral deposits.

The complex program of social and economic development of 13 Arctic and northern regions of Yakutia was developed at 2014-2017 and for the period up to 2020. The document was prepared by a working group headed by the first vice-premier of the government of Yakutia, Genady Vadyukhin.

Next week, the draft will be considered at the meeting of the organizing committee for holding the Republican Year of the Arctic, then it will be submitted to the government of Yakutia, the press service of the republic's administration reports.
