Working meeting with Governor of Chukotka Autonomous Area Roman Kopin

March 11, 2013

Mr Kopin briefed the President on the socioeconomic situation in Chukotka.

The Governor said that Chukotka’s gross regional product has increased almost two-fold since 2007. Mining is the regional economy’s mainstay. Gold extraction has gone from 4.5 tons in 2007 to 18–20 tons, and silver extraction has increased from 9 tons to 190 tons. Agriculture and the food production are also developing.

Implementing a programme of subsidised air travel for people living in remote regions was a separate subject of discussion.
