Deputy Prime Minister, the plenipotentiary envoy of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far East Yuriy Trutnev considers that for all round development of the Arctic zone of the Russian Federation it is necessary to create the competence center, which will supervise all basic kinds of activity.
“I think that it needs to raise work in the Arctic at another level. It does not mean to create the ministry, but the competence center should exist”, as Yuriy Trutnev said to TASS.
According to him, it is necessary for coordination of work of different directions on the Arctic development.
“For the present day in the Arctic there are extremely wide directions of activity: science, defense, ecology and interests of residents, development of projects in the sphere of extraction of mineral resources and geological exploration. There is much in the Arctic to be busy with, but it is impossible to fulfill this work without coordination”, as Yuriy Trutnev said.
As we should remind, within the conference in Sabetta, Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev informed that he had approved the new staff of the State Commission on Arctic Development. Deputy Prime Minister Yuriy Trutnev became the head of the Commission.
