Establishing Territories of Priority Development in the Russian Far East might require land withdrawals

16 october 2014
Establishing Territories of Priority Development (TPD) in the Russian Far East might require land withdrawals from private owners, the document prepared by the Government to be brought in State Duma says.
"For the purpose of establishing and developing infrastructural facilities in the Territories of Priority Social and Economic Development (TOPSED), land and immovable property withdrawals shall be permitted," says the document seen by TASS.
Decision on withdrawal can be based upon request from a TPD managing company that is under obligation to estimate the property, carry out cadastral works and negotiations with owners.
If negotiation reach a deadlock, the managing company is entitled to withdraw immovable property and land through court action, and to reimburse the former owner.  
Earlier media reported that the Government is pro-actively looking for appropriate areas, so that by the time the law is enforced there are options at the table.
Currently, there is a list of 14 appropriate areas for TOPSED to be established at. Probably, in the future the law will allow TOPSEDs to go beyond the Far East.
As it was earlier reported, several TPDs will be established in the Republic of Yakutia.
Among them, the Diamond Valley cluster that shall develop diamond manufacturing. It will be used as a “pilot site” to test the state support mechanism for intensive development of such territories, Maxim Bulshy, Deputy Head of Yakutia’s Ministry of Industry, said.
The implementation of the project is to begin in 2015.
Yakutia's Ministry of Industry expects that special economic management will facilitate a sevenfold increase in gross proceeds from diamond and jewelry sales by 2030. The industry may increase its black-ink balance ninefold driving total taxes paid to Yakutia’s budget to RUB 8.8 billion.
