The head of Yakutia, Aisen Nikolaev, announced the creation of a new structure in the region as part of the government - the Ministry for the development of the Arctic of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). He said this on Monday, speaking with a message to the State Assembly (Il Tumen) of the Republic.

"I decided to create the Ministry for the development of the Arctic of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). The economic growth of the Northern ulus of the Republic is associated with the formation of the North Yakut reference zone of the Arctic zone. The emphasis will be placed on the development of transport infrastructure around the NSR (Northern sea route), the reconstruction of ports, the creation of a high - tech Zhatai shipyard, the construction of which will begin in 2019," the head of Yakutia TASS quotes.

Aysen Nikolaev noted that the Department will be engaged in complex development of Northern territories. In his opinion, the work of the existing state Committee for Arctic Affairs "was reduced to the regulation of traditional activities: reindeer husbandry and fishing." "The development of the Arctic requires an integrated approach. Swoops, single measures it is not exactly to raise. The scale of the tasks requires a completely new level and quality of management," the head of Yakutia said.
