Joint measures to stimulate investment projects were discussed with the Government of the Republic of Khakassia

The Government of the Republic of Khakassia hosted a meeting on the implementation of promising investment projects in the region. The meeting was attended by Irina Voinova, the Deputy Head of the Republic of Khakassia, Minister of Finance, Viktor Bogushevich, Minister of Economic Development, Sergey Trufanov, Minister of Agriculture and Food, Vyacheslav Shibaev, Deputy Minister of Transport and Roads, as well as Alexey Nikolaev, Deputy Director General of the Yenisey Siberia Devlopment Corporation, Head of the Directorate for Investment Projects Attraction and Mikhail Krutskikh, Head of the Republic of Khakassia Office

Alexey Nikolaev presented the built up concept of the project “Creation of the roadside service facilities network in the Republic of Khakassia”. He noted that the development of an interregional road services network will improve the quality of services and increase tourist flow in the regions of the Yenisey Siberia. Based on the results of the project discussion, it was decided that the Corporation will develop an action plan for its implementation. The Ministry of Economic Development of the Republic will prepare information on the best location of the roadside service facilities and proposals for possible measures of state support.

The project for the construction of the Abakan – Biysk road, included in the Yenisey Siberia comprehensive investment project was discussed during the meeting. Currently, the work is being carried out in certain areas at the expense of the regional budget, but the total cost of the project exceeds the capabilities of the Republic, which requires determining the source of funding for the project from the federal budget. The project for the integrated development of the Askizsky district of the Republic of Khakassia can be one of the possible ways to justify measures for the construction of the road. Improving transport accessibility can lead to business development, as well as to a number of investment projects in the district. During the meeting, participants agreed to start work on the preparation of a financial justification for this project.

The development of the logistics infrastructure of the agro-industrial complex on the territory of the Republic of Khakassia, the Krasnoyarsk Region, and the Tyva Republic was also discussed. The Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation designed the concept of the Sayan Agro-Industrial Cluster investment project, which will increase the volume of shipments to the Russian and international markets via cooperation of local agricultural businesses.  The agreement was reached on the concept development of the agro-industrial complex logistics infrastructure on the territory of Khakassia and adjacent territories. The concept will include information of the agro-industrial complex logistics infrastructure parameters and proposals for possible measures of state support.

Following the meeting, Irina Voinova, the Deputy Head of the Republic of Khakassia stressed that the Government of the Republic is already actively working on the development of the projects planned for implementation in the territory of Khakassia as well as working out possible measures for their state support. Irina Voinova expressed interest in developing business ties with the Corporation to attract large investors and new projects to the region.
