Krasnodar, 10 April – Yug Times. In mid-March, Sergei Ponomarev, Head of the Dinskoi district municipality, announced his activity program for the nearest five-year period (2018-2022). We asked him where the most tangible achievements are expected.
Q.: Over the past year, much has been spoken about the regional Strategy of socio-economic development until the year 2030. How did this document influence your five-year plan?
A.: Directly. Being part and parcel of the given Strategy, our development program works out in detail the ways for its implementation in our municipality.
Q.: What is the role of the Dinskoi rayon in the Strategy, and what are the aims it sets for the municipality?
A.: The Dinskoi municipality has of late become part of Krasnodar agglomeration. Its specialization is agriculture, transport and logistics.
A mechanism for safeguarding the sustainable socio-economic development of the rayon will remain our main priority for the next five-year period. And we see highest possible implementation of the investment potential of the rayon as the main tool to make that mechanism come true.
Q.: What were the results of the latest investment forum in Sochi for the Dinskoi rayon?
A.: From the viewpoint of future prospects, we worked in a worthy manner. We signed a number of large-scale agreements to a total amount of approximately 2.5 billion roubles.
Q.: It is usually considered that the Dinskoi rayon mainly depends on the agricultural complex for its success. In this respect, what will be the direction for diversification of the local economy that your five-year plan declares as one of its key tasks?
A.: It would be a stereotype to assert that our only priority is agriculture. In reality, a number of other industries also have quite strong positions in the municipality. At the same time, further diversification is a must - and first of all at cost of new investments. Now it is industrial production that is coming to the forefront. It gives substantial results. Suffice it to say that in 2017 the industry gave 19.4% of the entire tax revenues - even more than agriculture. Nearly all towns and villages have either working industrial enterprises or projects scheduled to start in near future.
