Transport Minister Eugene Dietrich reported that the surplus of the assistant to the President Andrei Belousov may be directed to the development of Railways and ports, reports TASS.
According to the Minister, some of the companies on this list already work in the seaports. “I see the possibility of synergy, when the expansion of railroad capacity is synchronized with the development of port facilities, which takes care of business,” said Dietrich.
According to him, to make such projects attractive for companies will help the concession mechanism. When using this scheme, the investor in exchange for investment in the development of public infrastructure gets the opportunity to exploit a particular object, collecting the income in their favor.
In early August Belousov offered each year to withdraw a tax of 500 billion rubles in windfall metallurgical, chemical and petrochemical companies, which can be used to implement the may decree of Vladimir Putin. His list included 14 companies.
Later the company voluntarily agreed to participate in high-priority investment projects. Among the priority investerare Belousov called the infrastructure, the environment, the digitization, creation, implementation and distribution of “critical technologies, which are at the forefront of global development”.
