SEZ “Altai valley”

This decision was taken based on the report of the head of control management of presidential administration Konstantin Chuychenko: it turned out that since 2006 on the establishment of the SEZ has been spent 186 billion rubles, while the customs and tax payments from the SEZs amounted to only 40 billion rubles.

In addition, it was found that 24 billion of the allocated funds neustrategy and simply kept on Deposit, and the creation of one job in the SEZ, on average, spent 10.2 million roubles, this sum would be enough to pay the average Russian salary of one employee for 25 years.

In this regard, it was decided to abandon the creation of new special economic zone “to develop common approaches”. The report also Chuichenko said that the work of 10 of the SEZ can be stopped prematurely due to their inefficiency.

Lists and other data: for example, the SEZ do not use 40% of their allocated land, they instituted 5 criminal cases (in particular, about the theft of 509 million rubles in the Lipetsk region).

Thus in the Ministry of economic development argue that it is impossible to talk about the failure of the SEZ programs, as they are “competitive wave” and you just need to concentrate on is to avoid inefficiency.
