Vyacheslav Shport: the situation in the region remains stable

Today in Primorye, Plenipotentiary Representative of the President in the Far Eastern Federal District Yuri Trutnev held a meeting with the heads of the subjects of the Far East. The subject of the meeting were anti-crisis measures implemented in the regions of the Far East.

The governor of the Khabarovsk Territory Vyacheslav Shport, said that at the moment the situation in the region remains stable.

A special Coordination Council consisting of 11 working groups has been created in the Government of the Krai.

Also, the head of the region expressed several proposals to support a number of industries that need it in the first place. “Refinancing of regional financial support funds, guarantee funds, and the work of specialized banks have proven themselves well. But so far, for example, on preferential loans for small businesses through SME Bank, the quota for the Far East is about 2 billion rubles, while entrepreneurs of the Khabarovsk Territory took out loans in 2014 for 54 billion rubles. The problem with lending to small businesses is common to all the Far Eastern regions. Together we must work out financial mechanisms for this sector and bring our proposals to the federal level, " - said the Governor.

Construction is an important industry that needs support now. “The industry is the main recipient of foreign labor. At the same time, new requirements for labor migrants came into force on January 1. They provide for the obligatory passing of exams in the Russian language, the history of Russia, the foundations of statehood. At the same time, devaluation has increased the cost of labor for foreign migrants. We see from the registration of the FMS in January 2015 a decrease in foreign migrants by 2,5 times. There is a proposal - to shift the legislative requirements for exams by 1 year, so as not to aggravate the situation with construction projects ", - said Vyacheslav Shport.
