Arctic regions set the Far East as an example
In Moscow, in the format of a meeting of the discussion club of the Project Office for the Development of the Arctic (PORA), a discussion was held on the issues of interregional cooperation in the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation. The fact that such interaction is extremely important for the development and implementation of a new Arctic strategy for Russia’s development was agreed by all those present. But as an example to follow, was the experience of interaction and cooperation of the Far Eastern regions, especially over the past five years.
The event was attended by representatives of half of the Arctic regions - including the Arkhangelsk region, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), the Chukotka Autonomous Region. As Andrei Fedotov, the permanent representative of Yakutia under the President of the Russian Federation, noted: "The tasks for the development of the Arctic, which the head of state formulated, are of a strategic and extreme nature ... Voltage regionality cannot be accepted today, as it is a dead end."
Transport was discussed as a key issue requiring absolute coordination between actors. “The Northern Sea Route is the only transport route that unites the Russian Arctic,” said Victor Dosenko, director of the International Academy of Transport. It is important that the development of the Northern Sea Route gave impetus to coastal areas, and was not focused exclusively on transit. “This question should be raised and promoted exclusively together,” said Andrey Fedotov.
Together, according to participants, it is necessary to solve the problems of the tourism industry. The Director General of the Chukchi Tourism Development Fund, Andrei Kataev, recalled that the Arctic cruise tourism today is in great demand, but faces administrative restrictions. “These restrictions are characteristic both for Chukotka and Kamchatka, we must synchronize our positions and move the Arctic tourism along with all the regions.”
As one of the joint measures, EastRussia Managing Director Leonid Agafonov announced the publication of a tourist guide to the Arctic. “We have already started preparing this edition and will release it early next year. This publication will include all the main attractions of the regions and offer interesting routes to readers, ”he said.
The discussion was summarized by the moderator of the event, the PORA expert on PPP Alexander Vorotnikov: “It can be stated with regret that the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation is not a single whole today because of the spatial, communication, socio-economic disunity of the subjects of the Russian Arctic. Interregional cooperation is needed, which should cover all spheres of human activity, serve to develop education, science and culture of the population, strengthen confidence and international cooperation in the Arctic. ”
“All the identified problems and proposals for their solution should be reflected in the Arctic Development Strategy until 2035, which is planned to be presented this year by the Russian Ministry of Eastern Development,” said Alexander Vorotnikov.
