Vladimir Putin: all plans for the development of the Far East will be implemented

The Far East Development Fund is to be capitalized. TOR mode - extend to single-industry towns. And Vladivostok - the status of a free port!

In the second part of the message to the Federal Assembly, the President of Russia paid much attention to the tasks of supporting and economic development of the regions. And he especially emphasized the strategic importance of the Far East in strengthening the national influence and independence of the Russian Federation.

Noting the visible rise of the Far East, the President pointed out the need for its further support with a view to its further large-scale development.

To achieve this goal, a number of primary measures were proposed. First, the spread of the regime of advanced development territories (TOR) to new projects in single-industry towns with the most difficult economic situation. To do this, it is necessary to amend the draft law on TORs.

Secondly, to grant Vladivostok the status of a “free port” with a facilitated customs regime, which currently exists in Sevastopol.

"I propose to grant Vladivostok the status of a free port with a simplified customs regime, I recall that such measures are envisaged in relation to Sevastopol and other ports of the Crimea," President Putin said.

Finally, the Far East Development Fund should actively open and support new enterprises in the region in order to stimulate activity on the Pacific coast. For this, the Fund needs to be capitalized - despite disagreements on this issue in the Government of Russia

"I ask the government to work out the question of capitalization of the Far East Development Fund," the head of state said.

In general, Putin stressed that all plans for the development of the Far East will be realized, despite the existing difficulties.
