YUZHNO-SAKHALINSK, September 13 (Itar-Tass) —— The results of the socio-economic development of the Far Eastern region were summed up at a meeting held by the president’s envoy in the Far Eastern District Viktor Ishayev in Sakhalin on Tuesday. Heads of the district’s subjects, deputies of the State Duma and representatives of the Russian Ministry of Regional Development took part in the meeting.
“The results of the first six months are positive,” the envoy said, “the volumes of production of mineral resources, fish and see food products, as well as investments in the fixed capital stock and cargo turnover increased. Some 470,000 square metres of housing, almost 20 percent more than in the same period of last year, were commissioned.”
