ARKHANGELSK, May 24. /TASS/. The Northern Sea Route development project requires revision, particularly as regards the tariff policy and orders placement, Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Tuesday.
"The project obviously requires comprehensive revision and should correspond to the role the Northern Sea Route can and must play in the destiny of the Arctic Region and in competitive abilities of our country at large," Rogozin said.
"Development of the Northern Sea Route is a large-scale task and the starting point should exactly be the tariff policy and coordination of orders placements for carriers and government customers, and reduction of the so-called 'dead freight'," the official added.
