Ugranskiy district is ready to become the investment platform in the sphere of mining

The perspective directions of development of Ugranskiy district of the Smolensk region, its economic and investment potential were discussed by Acting Governor of Smolensk region Alexey Ostrovskiy and the head of the district Natalya Shishigina at the working meeting.

The main problem s of Ugranskiy district, according to Acting Governor, is lack of gasification and farness of municipality from the main thoroughfares. However the district is rich in woods, so, such directions as primary conversion and felling of the wood, and also its recycling are perspective. This year two new enterprises for processing of the wood have been opened in the territory of the district. One of them is LLC «PLADONIT» that will create additional workplaces and will provide tax revenues in the budget of the region.

The second enterprise is LLC «Lnozavod». Despite a small amount of workplaces, prospects of this organization in the territory of municipality are quite optimistic.

In addition, the income arrives from LLC «Ugranskiy karyer». Its primary activity is gravel and sand excavation. Ugra is rich in limestone deposits. The district can become the investment platform for the enterprises in the sphere of mining.

Also the head of municipality has noted that there are agricultural enterprises in Ugra which grow flax. This year they have collected over 410 hectares. However further development of this direction faces problems with sale of the processed raw materials and the equipment.

For the solution of this question Alexey Ostrovskiy has suggested to involve capacities of a plant on advanced processing of flax which will be constructed in the territory of the Vyazemskiy district.
