Yakutia Industry Minister: Yakutia southern and western regions will be centers for wood extraction and processing
Yakutia 24 TV channel: Minister of Industry of the region Maxim Tereshchenko said that the Aldan, Lena, Olekma and Ust-Maya regions will become the centers for extraction and processing of wood. He stated this at a meeting of the Economic Council under the government of the republic.
The meeting addressed issues of timber industry development in the region for the 2019-2024 period, as well as the prospects of Almazergienbank to reach the other regions of the Far East until 2022.
Minister of Industry Maxim Tereshchenko said that to date, the southern and western regions of the republic are full of timber reserves.
“We focus on four main areas that contain about 47% of forest intended for harvesting. This choice is related to the proximity of infrastructure – railway or water transport – and to the quality of material,” he said.
