September 7, 2017 11:29


 The export of transportation services allowed Russia to earn about 15 billion dollars in 2016. This was announced at the Eastern Economic Forum (VEF-2017) by the Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov.

“This is almost half of the revenues that come to the country from gas exports and one-third more than the earnings from the export of coal and ferrous metals” - he added.

Sokolov also told about the prospects for the development of the transport sector in the Far East. According to him, the growth of regional air transportations in the region amounted to approximately 12-14 percent, the volume of transportations in the Far Eastern Federal District will exceed the level of seven million passengers this year.

In 2018 the Ministry of Transport expects to reach the planned value of the growth of cargo transportations in the amount of 66 million tons through Baikal-Amur Highway and Trans-Siberian Highway. The Minister also added that the development of small aircraft transportations also played a huge role in the Far Eastern region.
