In Yakutia in the next five years, economic growth will continue - the Minister of Economy

Despite the economic difficulties in the country, in Yakutia in the next five years, economic growth will continue, and previously taken social obligations will be fulfilled. As the Yasya news agency reports, the head of the republic's Economy Ministry Valery Maksimov told journalists about it.

“When forming the forecast, we certainly proceeded from the fact that we need to fulfill all public obligations and social guarantees,” the minister said. He also stressed that the growth of the gross regional product in Yakutia will be maintained until 2019 with an indicator above the national average and "the republic will maintain its leading position."

According to him, the growth rate of GRP will be influenced by investments, including those related to the implementation of the Power of Siberia project and the development of the Chayandinskoye field. Valery Maksimov also said that the economic difficulties in the country led to a decrease in federal aid and did not allow maintaining the previous planned directions. In particular, an annual reduction in funding for state programs is provided (in 2015 by 3%, in 2016 - 5%, in 2017 - 6%), but it will not affect the parameters of support for agriculture and entrepreneurship.
