Vladimir Putin called the idea of ​​allocating land to the inhabitants of the Far East correct

During the working meeting, Deputy Prime Minister - Plenipotentiary of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev informed Vladimir Putin about the socio-economic situation in the subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District and measures for the development of the Far East.

He reported an increase in industrial production over the 11 months of 2014, which was 5,9 percent. Consolidated budgets of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation increased by 14,6 percent. At 29 percent increased volumes in agriculture, which is associated with the support of agriculture after the last year's flooding. Foreign trade increased by 5 percent.

The deputy prime minister paid special attention to the recently signed law on territories of advanced development: work on the selection of projects is already underway; this year, the creation of the first territories of priority development in the Far East will be reported. In particular, within the next month, proposals will be given for the creation of a free port in Vladivostok.

The main topic of conversation was plans for the development of the Far East and for attracting new residents to the region. The turning point, according to the official, has already passed: a natural population growth of 1100 people has been noted in the region, the outflow of residents has been greatly reduced - from 27 to 20 thousand, but this trend needs to be strengthened. Vladimir Trutnev proposed the idea of ​​allocating land free of charge to every inhabitant of the Far East and to any person who would like to come to the Far East to develop agriculture, forestry, hunting or to conduct business. At the moment, it is planned to allocate 1 hectare, but the figure may be increased. The land will be provided for a period of five years. At the end of the term, the land will be assigned to the owner, and in the absence of use, it will be withdrawn in favor of the state.

The President supported the idea, but asked to work it out in detail. “The idea itself is correct and has already been implemented in Siberia in the history of Russia. Modern conditions of farming, the modern economy are a little different, so you need to think over all the details, ”said Vladimir Putin.
