(Semyon Vinokurov, Yakutia Transport Minister - On development of shipbuilding in Yakutia )

- We are going to involve our Zhatai shipyard, modernize its facilities and start building vessels of mixed sea/river navigation at the shipyards of the Russian Federation. Different mechanisms of support are considered here. Among them is the inclusion of this issue into the state support programme for renovation of vessels under privileged leasing conditions. That is a 15-years period of preferential rate — 2.6% and utilization grant which is to be approved at the level of RF Government.

The project has been preliminary approved by the Ministry of Economy and the Ministry of Industry and Trade. Implementation is supposed to begin in 2018. The competition will be announced after the state programme and the scope of federal budget allocations is approved.
