Reconstruction of the Tiksi seaport and construction of the Zhataysky shipyard will allow to create more than 4.5 thousand new jobs in the Arctic region of Yakutia, the head of Yakutia Egor Borisov has announced at a plenary session of the VII International forum "The Arctic: The Present And The Future" which has opened in St. Petersburg today.
"By 2030 overall income of local budgets is estimated to increase by 1.7 times. By 2025 the multiplicative effect of development of the mining industry in Arctic territories of Yakutia alone will provide creation of not less than 1500 new jobs in the mining industry and more than 3 thousand in the accompanying branches.
