The Ministry of the East will develop the Arctic
At a meeting with the President, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev proposed to expand the functions of the Ministry of the East Development and to complement the development of the Arctic with its competence. Also, the head of the cabinet proposed to introduce the post of first deputy minister, who will be directly responsible for the Arctic zone.
According to Dmitry Medvedev, the government does not have a single structure that would coordinate this activity. Expansion of the Ministry of Economic Development functionality, in his opinion, will help not to create new governing bodies and not to spend money on it. Moreover, now the ministry is engaged in the development of the Far Eastern zone, which goes to the Arctic.
“In fact, these are very often overlapping issues: for example, the development of Yakutia or Chukotka is still the development of the Arctic zone,” Dmitry Medvedev noted.
Vladimir Putin approved the proposal. It is possible that the agency will now be called the Ministry for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic zone.
