Putin says preferential regime of the free port of Vladivostok to be extended to key Far Eastern harbours
Transport infrastructure of Russia should be developed, Vladimir Putin said yesterday during the Annual Presidential Address to the Federal Assembly. He said that the Northern Sea Route should become a link between Europe and the Asia-Pacific Region. “To enhance its competitiveness we will extend the preferential regime of the free port of Vladivostok to key Far Eastern harbours”, Vladimir Putin said.
“ We will continue to upgrade our transport infrastructure and expand major logistic centres, such as the Azov-Black Sea and the Murmansk transport hubs, modern ports in the Baltic Sea and the Russian Far East. …We will review in detail the situation with inland waterways and river routes during a forthcoming State Council meeting,” said the President.
