Strengthening Airport Infrastructure in the Far East and Arctic
Usually, a private enterprise won’t be working with a share of underfunding a federal state-owned one will. Under the same financial conditions, a federal fiscal enterprise is still more stable, so we suggest that small airports should go to federal fiscal enterprises

Strengthening Airport Infrastructure in the Far East and Arctic
We have a very good growth of passenger traffic at the Ulan-Ude airport: we are reaching the level of 2019 (+37%), there are already not enough platforms. We understand that with the development of tourism Lake Baikal will always be attractive, definitely for domestic tourism. Currently, all hotels and places of accommodation are booked, tourist flow is growing! There are investors building hotels. We expect at least 1 million more tourists in six or seven years. This is a lot, and we need to develop the airport

Muravyov-Amursky 2030
Any creative idea needs to fit into the structure: reporting deadlines, financial discipline and so on. And if your creative idea... makes changes to the project, to the budget or documentation, this means new tenders, deadlines... <...> And everything is gone, the money is all taken away. You have no money, no project: neither good nor bad – no project at all

Muravyov-Amursky 2030
In a team, you need to listen. Yes, you are all stars in your own right. You are all ambitious. The fact that you just applied for this programme already proves your ambition. The fact that you won such a competition already shows that you stand out. But you joined the team, and you need to fit in, because if you keep telling the whole team that you are a star, and you are going to teach them how to live, it is not going to work. So, it is very important that you set yourself for teamwork right away

In fact, I decided for myself that I allocate the position of advisor to [those] who graduate from the Muravyov-Amursky project. They would work there as an advisor for at least a year, and we will understand where to transfer them... Maybe into construction, investments, social sphere... or it is tourism, or education. We need to understand what kind of tool you are – for painting, sculpting, and so on

Cruise Control: New Aviation Routes in the Far East
Interregional transportation is absolutely essential. The flight should be cheap and regularly scheduled. At present there are flights twice a week, and there are no tickets. It’s like that throughout the Far East. In general, we do a poor job of predicting availability and demand. As in the case of Ulan-Ude: in 2017, there were roughly 1.5 flights a day to Moscow; now there are four of them, and they are still not enough. They all fill up, no matter which direction you take. We established [a route] to Tomsk last year, and there are no tickets, it’s completely full

Cruise Control: New Aviation Routes in the Far East
Interregional air travel isn’t just a trip to grandmother’s; it is economic and commercial relations. For some people tourism is a chance to rest, though it is actually business and regional development... The lower people’s incomes, the more social expenses the state is left with: to reimburse the cost of utilities, for child support, for firewood

A Land of Incredible Adventures: New Opportunities for Tourists and Investors in the Far East
The programmes are primarily built based on <...> local passenger traffic. Tourist traffic is somewhat accounted for. It needs to be included to calculate the capacity, routes, and passenger traffic. <...> The programme for aircraft leasing does not exist, per say. <...> I would say it would make sense <...> to review the programmes <...> in terms of <...> tourism instead of local passenger traffic alone. There can be two areas for improvement. First of all, it is infrastructure. <...> Secondly, it is aircraft leasing. <...> Finally, it is subsidizing the travel – the air fare, the tour, etc

‘Tourism and the Hospitality Industry’: New Investment and Technological Opportunities for the Sector
Tourism cannot only be developed with federal support, by the federal centre, or solely by the regional authorities, or local authorities, or only through the efforts of business. At any event, it needs to be a consolidation of efforts

Housing, Utilities, and the Urban Environment: Effective Investments
Now that the projects are being implemented, it is necessary to pay their dues to the Government, the Ministry of Construction, personally Vladimir Vladimirovich [Yakushev, – Ed.] and his team for the fact that a lot of projects have been started. Within the framework of national projects, the project "Clean Water" is underway. In the Republic of Buryatia, this is RUB 4.7 billion. We are moving the stratum of issues that we did not even know how to approach or when. And we are significantly improving the quality of water for the people. <...> Those projects and programmes that have already been launched at the federal level as part of national projects and additional assignments, already allow us to significantly improve the current situation

Increasing the Investment Appeal of the Far East
The Republic of Buryatia is the most overregulated region in environmental legislation. <...> The number of inspections grew significantly. About 30% of small business in tourism shut down just this year alone. <...> A venue may cost RUB 100 thousand and be ready in a month. An audit will cost RUB 300 thousand and takes two months – environmental audit of literally everything

For a number of years, China has been one of the main trade partners of the Republic of Buryatia, and ranks first in foreign trade volume of the Republic: 35% in 2017, 37% in the first half of 2018. In 2017 the foreign trade volume increased by 21% to the level of 2016. In the first half of 2018, growth continued and amounted to 17%.

Year over year, the growth in exports in the first half of 2018 was the result of a 6.5 times increase in the supply of cardboard
