Vladimir Ilyukhin: the main intrigue - which projects will be pilot in the Far East

The Governor of the Kamchatka Territory, Vladimir Ilyukhin, shared with EastRussia his opinion on the draft law "On territories of advanced socio-economic development in the Russian Federation" adopted in the second reading.

He stressed that "now the main intrigue is which projects will become pilot projects in the Far East."

"The project of creating a mixed type TM in Kamchatka has a fairly high degree of study, in addition, some of the activities envisaged by the project are already being implemented. In the framework of the project to create a strong point on the Northern Sea Route, an active construction of a new Marine Terminal building is under way in Kamchatka, in the near future, together with Rosmorrechflot, we will begin reconstruction of the berthing facilities. The agreement on the beginning of works on the reconstruction of the pier economy has already been signed, and the funds are provided for by federal programs, "the head of the region said.

As Vladimir Ilyukhin explained, "the development project of the Peter and Paul port is of interest not only to Russian, but also to foreign investors. Chinese, Japanese and South Korean partners expressed their desire to become residents of the TOP. "

"We have made good progress in the development of the tourist complex," the head of the region notes. "By the end of the year, the tourist flow to the region has grown significantly. The creation of a TOP in Kamchatka will allow us to significantly tighten the infrastructure, attract additional private capital to this sector. "

"Considering the significance of the development of the inland sea corridor in the country, the development of international navigation and the creation of comfortable places for rest of Russians, the Kamchatka TOR will be of strategic importance not only for the Far East, but for the whole country," he told EastRussia.

In today's investment message to the authorities and business, the head of the region also stressed that the law on TORs "will become for the region a key mechanism that will lead to other economic dynamics and, of course, improve the living conditions in the territory."

Recall that the preliminary list of pilot Far Eastern projects included the territory of the advanced social and economic development of Kamchatka. In a global sense, the Kamchatka TOR is the creation of a strong point on the Northern Sea Route in the form of a transit hub port. It will allow to accumulate and sort the container shipments delivered by vessels from the APR countries to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and then organize the loading into a specialized fleet for transportation by the Northern Sea Route to Europe, North America, Canada. At the same time, it is planned to create a tourist and recreational cluster "Paratunka", which includes rehabilitation and sanatorium centers, hotels, a modern ski complex and sports and entertainment facilities.
