Yuri Trutnev chaired a meeting of the Council of the Far Eastern Federal District

The meeting summed up the results of the VI Eastern Economic Forum, and also considered the implementation of the reform of control (supervisory) activities in the Far Eastern Federal District, improving work to protect the population and territories from fires and floods.

As the Deputy Prime Minister recalled, more than 4 thousand people from Russia and 58 foreign countries took part in the forum, 380 agreements worth more than 3 trillion rubles were signed. “It depends on our common work that all these agreements are implemented and benefit the development of the economy, improve the lives of people living in the Far East,” stressed Yuri Trutnev.

Following the results of EEF-2021, 61 orders of the President were given. A number of orders will expire in 2022. One of the most important directions will be the beginning of the renovation of the Far Eastern cities. According to the Deputy Prime Minister, discussions of the master plans will be held publicly, and the selection will be made on a competitive basis. “We will choose them together, depending on the degree of elaboration,” Yuri Trutnev specified.

The Deputy Prime Minister instructed the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and the heads of regions to start working out the program of the VII Eastern Economic Forum and preparing for participation in the exhibition “Street of the Far East” in 2022.

The work of the control and supervisory bodies was reviewed. On July 1, the Federal Law “On State Control (Supervision) and Municipal Control in the Russian Federation” came into force. The law excludes verification of the same requirements by different control bodies; obliges to post the results of the check in the information system; reduces the number and timing of scheduled inspections; gives business additional rights to protect, etc. According to Yuri Trutnev, although the work of control and supervisory bodies has become more transparent, almost every fourth entrepreneur in the Far East faces administrative pressure. The greatest pressure is noted by entrepreneurs in the Kamchatka and Primorsky Territories and the Republic of Buryatia.

He asked the heads of these regions and the chief federal inspectors to pay special attention to the situation. Also, the Deputy Prime Minister instructed the heads of the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District to analyze the level of pressure of regional and municipal control and supervisory bodies on business and take measures to reduce it; chief federal inspectors to take control of the number of inspections of federal control and supervisory bodies in the regions; The Ministry of Economic Development and Trade should work out additional measures to regulate control activities in order to reduce pressure while maintaining the required level of public safety. “I am sure that the pressure of control and supervision activities on the economy should be lower,” Yuri Trutnev summed up the results.

Attention was paid to the conduct of fire and flood control measures. On behalf of the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin, the issues of increasing funding for forest fire protection were worked out. In 2022, an additional 3.4 billion rubles will be allocated to the Far East. And in general, almost 5.8 billion rubles are provided for the protection of forests from fires in the Far Eastern regions, which is 1.7 times more than the planned level of the current year.

Yuri Trutnev drew the attention of the leadership of the Ministry of Natural Resources to the need to accelerate the implementation of the order of the Prime Minister to develop proposals for amending regulatory documents to expand the capabilities of regional and municipal authorities to create fire protection belts around settlements.

The construction of hydraulic structures was discussed. After the President’s decree on reducing flood risks in the district, a list of necessary engineering protection was drawn up. It turned out 37 objects. Regions from the federal budget have allocated 566 million rubles for the development of design estimates for 34 objects. 11 hydraulic structures have already been built. This is over 44 km of engineering protection. In the Magadan Region and the Jewish Autonomous Region, three objects have been erected each, in Yakutia – 2 objects, in the Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories and in Chukotka – 1 object each. Four more dams, 32 km long, are currently under construction.

Rosvodresursy together with the regions updated the list of necessary engineering protection compiled in 2013. It includes 58 new objects. The federal budget allocated 11.8 billion rubles for the construction of 21 engineering protection facilities. The Ministry of Natural Resources, together with the regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, have identified 11 priority measures, for which 10 billion rubles will be provided in 2022-2024. So, 700 million rubles will be allocated to Buryatia for the engineering protection of Ulan-Ude, and it is also planned to build an engineering protection for the village of Naushki, which is regularly exposed to floods. The Primorsky Territory will receive 900 million rubles for the construction of four facilities to protect the villages of Roshchino and Vostretsovo, the Lesozavodsky urban district, the village of Gornyye Klyuchi, and the Seven Winds microdistrict of the city of Ussuriysk. The Jewish Autonomous Region will be provided with 2.4 billion rubles to protect the village of Leninskoye and for the construction of two complexes of hydraulic structures in the villages of Dobroe, Kvashnino, Kukelevo, Novoye, Dezhnevo. Financing of the Khabarovsk Territory is provided for the construction of the engineering protection of Komsomolsk-on-Amur.

Yuri Trutnev instructed the heads of the Far Eastern regions to take personal control and ensure the completion of the construction (reconstruction) of hydraulic structures designed to protect territories from the negative impact of water, as planned, to be co-financed from the federal budget in the period 2022–2024.
