The Vostochny space center can be a good incentive for the development of the entire Far East - Putin
The "Vostochny" spaceport is the largest nationwide project, which can become a good stimulus for the development of the entire Far East. This was stated by Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting on the development of the cosmodrome. As the press service of the Kremlin reports, before the meeting the head of state visited the construction site of the cosmodrome and got acquainted with the progress of the work.
The President stressed that the Vostochny cosmodrome will allow to enter space, independently from any sites that are outside the territory of the Russian Federation. He reminded that "serious budgetary resources" are being invested in the construction: from 2011 for this purpose more than 100 billion rubles have been sent, and about 50 billion rubles are planned to be allocated in 2015 year.
“It is planned to develop not only this own complex, but also on-site personnel training, additional infrastructure development, including road and railway, is expected. It is intended to expand the possibilities of industry in Eastern Siberia, in Siberia in general and in the Far East. In general, this is something that can be a very good impetus for the development of the entire Far East of our country, ”said the president.
He also noted that with the creation of a cosmodrome in the Far East, “a powerful research and production complex and a center will be created, which means there will be an additional incentive for the inflow of investments, for creating new high-tech jobs, attracting strong, young professionals that the Far East needs ". As Vladimir Putin stressed, “the development of the cosmodrome should be carried out simultaneously with the creation of a modern social infrastructure,” so that work on it “was truly attractive in the future, including for young professionals.”
