Timber processing to be developed in the northeast of Bashkiria

author: Eugene Rakhimkulov

Timber processing, agriculture and recreation will be actively developed in the northeast of Bashkiria, the Prime-Minister of the Government RB Azamat Ilimbetov reported during today's online conference on the site of "The Public Electronic Newspaper". In his opinion these branches are the most promising for this zone.

"The northeast of the Republic needs special approach and that's why we approved the special program for its development" — the Prime-Minister said — "We understand that the economic life in this region which unfortunately leaves much to be desired, should be revived and now we are working with the investors. Agriculture, recreation and timber processing are the main advantages of the northeast and we are concentrating ourselves on these directions and intend to invest both budget and private means to it in order to fix it at least on the all-Republican level".

Azamat Ilimbetov has also mentioned that the northeastern regions of Bashkiria represent the same separate zone as the Bashkir trans-Ural and not without reason the special programs for these regions were approved. But if Bashkir trans-Ural possesses solid reserves of precious and non-ferrous metals, around which big enterprises and investors are concentrated, the Republican northeast possesses none of these natural advantages, so it is necessary to develop this zone, coming from the potential, available there.
