Krasnodar, 27 November – Yug Times. The new projects will reportedly help increase regional budget revenues and open up hundreds of new jobs. The preparation work to the upcoming Russian Investment Forum in Sochi has begun in the Krasnodar region. Each of its economic zones should choose the priority projects to be presented at the Forum. Last week, vice governor Igor Galas held a conference in Timashevsk, where the municipal heads of the Central Economic Zone presented their investment projects.
The Central Economic Zone unites 11 districts - Abinsk, Brukhovetsky, Vyselki, Kalininsky, Korenovsk, Krasnoarmeisky, Krymsk, Primorsko-Akhtarsk, Slaviansk, Timashevsk, and Ust-Labinsk. Apart from good transport accessibility and comfortable living environment, they have a welldeveloped agricultural complex. This was why the municipal heads got a chance to present their projects that were to become real points of growth.
“What we need are breakthrough ideas that will let our region comply with the ambitious aims of the central power,” Mr. Galas announced. “One of the key ideas is to increase the GRP growth by 4 to 5% every year.”
He also said that the regional authorities are ready to back such projects and invest budget money in them, provided the result is seen - opening of new jobs and additional budget revenues.
One of such projects is the construction of a cheese, butter and whey dairy in Vyselki. It is forecast that this plant will give about 400 million roubles a year into the regional and federal budgets.
The Krymsk district presented the project of a power station that should help rtesolve the issue of power deficiency in the south-western part of the region, and support the stable work of the Crimean power system. The total cost of the project exceeds 27 billion roubles. When accomplished, it will help open up about 300 jobs.
