(Russian President Vladimir Putin - On the priorities for the development of the Far East transport infrastructure )

The large-scale investment program of the Far East should be associated with the development of the transport cluster of the region, I mean primarily BAM and Transsib. According to the project, which was approved three years ago, the throughput of these rail mainlines by 2020 should grow by 66 million tonnes, of which more than 30 million tonnes should be generated by shippers of the Far East. And I want to emphasize that Far Eastern companies should get priority access to transport services, have all the opportunities for full-fledged supply and export of products.

From the transcript of the meeting on the implementation of major investment projects in the Far Eastern Federal District.
