Head of Yakutia talked about positive tendencies in Yakutian economy

Judging by the results of this year’s first two months, the Republican economy has shown positive tendencies, Egor Borisov stated.

“The turnover of enterprises grew in comparison with the previous year and reached the level of 92.5bn roubles. The actual salary increased by 6%. The amount of investments into the economy has somewhat decreased if compared with the same period of the previous year,” the head of the Republic informed. However, Borisov predicts that the investment amount will grow significantly at the end of the year. He bases his predictions on the fact that OAO Gazprom will soon launch the Yakutsk gas centre.
