LISTVYANKA SETTLEMENT (Irkutsk region), June 18 (Itar-Tass) - A plan for the development of Baikalsk city in Russia’s Irkutsk region and the setting up of a tourism economic zone may be ready before the end of summer, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said at a meeting with United Russia Party activists in the region.
He said the financing of the program will amount to 40 billion roubles, of which up to 26 billion roubles will be from the federal budget. This money will be used for the activity to shut down the Baikal Pulp and Paper Mill and to create new jobs.
