Recall that the initiative to transfer the capital of the district was made by the acting head of Primorye Oleg Kozhemyako. It was he who wrote a letter to the head of state in which he substantiated his position. The president agreed with arguments Kozhemyako.
There is nothing surprising in the president’s decision - Vladivostok really is not just the economic center of the region, but also a kind of symbol of the Russian Far East. Therefore, the initiative to transfer the capital met with full approval in the Russian parliament.
The new status will allow Vladivostok to develop more efficiently, in particular - it will create new jobs in the city, attract both Russian and foreign investments. Indeed, now the issue of economic development of the Far East is very acute, especially if we talk about the need to expand the Russian presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
