Improve the transport and logistics infrastructure of the Far East, including the development of the Northern Sea Route
The Northern Sea Route is the most essential transport artery, which is of great importance for developing the economy and responding to the challenges and strains that currently exist. The Russian government has adopted a plan for the Northern Sea Route. It will cost us RUB 1.8 trillion, but I am certain that we will manage. We will build icebreakers, launch satellites, build escort ships and much more, so that the Northern Sea Route will work at full capacity,” Trutnev said.
“Vladivostok has something to work towards. Building infrastructure, such as subway, roads, and highways. They must be highly convenient and must ensure competitiveness. We need to look at building a large market [...] The three provinces of China that border Primorye should develop bilateral relations and cross-border trade [...] Vladivostok is situated on the shores of the Sea of Japan, and we need to open up to the world. This would be a good direction for common development — Wang Wen, Executive Dean, Chongyang Institute for Financial Studies, Renmin University of China (RDCY).
We need to work on establishing logistical routes. This includes a railway that would connect the central, European part of Russia and the Far East. The centre will shift towards the Far East. Legal regulation of relations is also crucial. In addition to the excellent investment conditions domestically, a lot needs to be recognized internationally. Here we face challenges: European, Western, and American systems of recognition, verification, and certification need to be abandoned, but this isn’t a bad thing. We are looking at Asian countries. China has made very serious developments in this regard — Natalia Stapran, Director of Multilateral Economic Cooperation and Special Projects Department, Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation.
