Problematic issues arising from business during the implementation of investment projects in the territory of the Republic of Crimea were considered during a meeting of the Regional Investment Committee chaired by Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers – Minister of Finance of the Republic Irina Kiviko.
"The meeting of the Investment Committee is very important. They are held within the framework of the Regional Investment Standard and are designed to improve communication with investors, identify existing problems and ways to solve them, and assist in the successful implementation of investment projects," Irina Kiviko said after the meeting of the Investment Committee.
During the meeting, issues related to the purchase of land plots, access roads, including their repair, as well as the fulfillment of social obligations by investors were considered.
In particular, it was decided at one of the next meetings of the Republican Investment Climate Improvement Council to consider an additional agreement on the revision of the deadlines for fulfilling social obligations within the framework of the investment project for the construction of a water sports recreation complex in the eastern part of the peninsula.
"The administration of Feodosia asks the investor to contribute funds, which is more than RUB 26 million, within two, not three years. This petition will be considered and the Feodosians will receive the necessary funds," the Deputy Prime Minister said.
Another of the issues discussed concerned problems with the purchase of land. "We are talking about the construction of a multifunctional refueling complex on a federal highway. The investor has not yet started the construction of such a necessary and vital infrastructure," Irina Kiviko said.
