The priority development of the regions of the Russian Far East is ensured by the creation of a number of instruments that open the way for entrepreneurs and investors.

What does the TORA or free port regime give to exporters? On the fact of any special measures that would exclusively and specifically address the export of manufactured products, these economic regimes do not provide. There are a number of private measures that, of course, optimize the processes of foreign economic activity. These include the possibility of creating a free customs zone (STZ) at a resident enterprise, which allows duty-free import of equipment and goods for processing, and then - export products. Significant for export-import operations were also the norms of the free port of Vladivostok, which obliged the border crossing points of Primorsky Krai to switch to a round-the-clock mode of operation. However, in general, these economic regimes are aimed at optimizing investment and doing business in the Far East, while exports are rather an objective motivator for investors to come to the Far East.

According to the Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East, Alexander Galushka, the system of mechanisms and institutions for development is aimed at "expanding the freedom of economic and business activities, increasing profitability and reducing the risks of investing in the macroregion."

Both TORA and the free port of Vladivostok allow businesses to significantly optimize the economic model when working in the Far East. In addition to the widely used benefits for optimizing the income tax and property tax, these regimes have, for example, such benefits as the optimization of social payments to the wage fund. Residents for up to 10 years pay insurance premiums in the amount of 7,6% instead of 30%, which provides significant savings, especially for projects that employ highly qualified and highly paid staff.

According to the Deputy Minister of the Ministry of the East, Alexander Krutikov, “the attractiveness of the territories of priority development is due to three main elements. The first - tax breaks. The second is the availability of infrastructure. The third component is a special system of management of such territories. The basis of this system is a simple principle: the investor is always right. ”

What is interesting, to claim such support, having received the status of a resident of a free port or TOP, companies can be small to large. The minimum "threshold" of investments is 500 thousand rubles. For TOR and 5 million rubles. For a free port. At the same time, it is possible to declare a preferential regime for new companies starting a business from scratch, or for existing enterprises investing in technological modernization or expansion of production. Practice shows that small and medium-sized businesses are really starting to enjoy benefits: among active residents there are companies that employ only 10-15 people.

Khabarovsk Territory is a region with the most developed industrial production among the subjects of the Far Eastern Federal District (DFO). It would seem that this should automatically make the main export item high-tech products. However, statistics show that the bulk of exports of the Khabarovsk Territory is still associated with its natural resources: products of forest and fish processing, fuel and precious metals. The quality of exports from the region from year to year nevertheless grows: if in 2013, raw materials accounted for 45%, then in 2016, only 35%.

According to customs statistics, over the past four years, Khabarovsk Krai exports quarterly products for 250-400 million dollars.

According to the results of 2013, the export of the Khabarovsk Territory amounted to 1,51 billion dollars - 0,3% of the total amount of 525,98 billion dollars for the whole of Russia. According to the results of 2014, 1,44 billion, the same 0,3% of 497,36 billion dollars. In 2015, when Russian exports are expected to "sink", the edge was able to improve its performance to 0,33% - 1,15 billion from 343,54 billion dollars. Exports from Russia amounted to 285,49 billion dollars. The share of Khabarovsk Territory in the total amount - 1,55 billion, or 0,54%.

Simultaneously with the growth in the value of exports, its structure has improved. In 2013, 44,5% of exports from Khabarovsk Krai accounted for commodities, 19% - for non-primary energy exports, 36,5% - for non-primary exports, not related to energy. The shares of the first and second gradually decreased. As a result, by the end of 2016, the region came from 60% of non-primary non-energy exports (930 million), 5,2% of non-primary energy exports (80 million) and 34,8% of commodity exports (540 million).
