Yakutia 24 TV channel: The system of distribution of forest plots and transactions with timber in the Far East may start in 2020.
“This year, we plan to launch a system for the distribution of forest plots and transactions with wood in the Far Eastern Federal District. We will introduce federal law into the State Duma,” says Far Eastern Development Minister.
Earlier, Presidential Envoy to the Far East Yuri Trutnev said that a new system for managing the forest complex of the FEFD would be created on the basis of images from space. Then the forest plots will be distributed at an auction, and the wood itself will be sold through the exchange.
Trutnev also notes that a tree shall be marked, to be able to track the entire process of movement.
It is planned to simplify the technical and environmental requirements for forest processing, increase the load of timber trucks, allow the cultivation of forest plantations and build forest roads at the expense of investors through public-private partnership.
