    Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich

    On viability of industrial areas at ports

    Today, it is viable to place export-oriented manufactures at ports ...

    It is necessary to focus our support on location of new production facilities close to port infrastructure to escape extra expenses (including budget allocations for export promotion) for transportation by railways and motor transport. … It does not mean that others should not be supported, a rational approach is needed ...

    We should (otherwise - Ed.) support Russian Railways so that they could cover their expenses, and the enterprises incur more expenses.
