MOSCOW, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev thinks unsystematic establishment of new special economic regimes in the country is a dangerous tendency.
“We must clearly understand what stems from what, what kind of privileges are offered, which of them are working and what is useless, what legal models are used in these or those cases,” he said on Friday at an extended meeting of the board of the Russian Ministry of Economic Development. “So, I think it is dangerous to simply replicate more and more such regimes.”
He reminded that in the past several years, a great number of territories with special economic regimes, technology parks, various clusters, special economic zones, even regions, such as Kaliningrad, the Far East and Crimea had been established throughout the country.
“We must thoroughly consider novelties in the legislation and the conceptual framework because we have ‘created’ too much in the recent time,” Medvedev said, adding that all these special zones created a “multi-layer economic environment".
