The State Duma is in favour of elaborating a single concept for the development of the North Caucasian region
The State Duma is in favour of elaborating a single concept for the development of the North Caucasian region, Duma Vice-Speaker and Head of the Commission for the Problems of the Northern Caucasus Vladimir Katrenko stated here, addressing the lower house’s Wednesday plenary meeting with a report on the results of his commission’s work. Stabilisation of the situation in the Northern Caucasus is impossible without a stable development of the socio-economic sector there, he noted. “Precisely for this reason, the commission members have drawn up this year several proposals for the socio-economic development of the Southern Federal District of Russia,” he stressed. For instance, Katrenko explained, it is proposed to compile a detailed economic “passport” of the region. The commission is also in favour of drawing up a program of maximum legalisation of economic activities in the region. Touching on the development of the social sectors in the regions of the Southern Federal District, Katrenko noted the need of building abundant publicly affordable housing facilities with the use of the instruments stipulated in the federal “Social Housing” program. Equally important, commission members believe, is the need to turn the city of Sochi, the health resorts of Kabardino-Balkaria, Karachayevo-Cherkessia, Adyge, and the Caucasian Minerals Spas into special economic zones. Katrenko also noted the need of drawing up programs for the upbringing of young people in the Chechen Republic, which would include concrete measures to enlist them in the effort to rehabilitate the republic. At the same time, the head of the commission told the MPs that all those proposals were already submitted to the government of the Russian Federation. “They were addressed to Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov, and Vice-Premier Alexander Zhukov has already instructed the agencies and ministries concerned to promptly consider the commission’s suggestions,” Katrenko stated
