A significant part of mineral deposits from the Unallocated Fund of the Russian Federation is concentrated in Siberia and the far East. There are the largest deposits of hydrocarbons, coal, gold, copper, diamonds, large deposits of ferrous, non-ferrous and rare metals, phosphorites of uranium, tin and other ore and non-metallic minerals. However, the huge natural resources of the region are used limited due to harsh climatic conditions, low population density, undeveloped infrastructure. This also makes it unprofitable for business investment in mining and processing of minerals. Until recently, the development of deposits was carried out separately from the territorial development of the subjects of the Russian Federation, and the legal relations of investors and the state in the sphere of subsoil use were regulated by the Federal law «on the production sharing agreement.»Today, the strategy of complex socio-economic development of the Far East and the Baikal region for the period up to 2025 is allows to develop the specialization of the subjects and to combine the strategies of socio-economic development of the subjects of the Russian Federation, municipalities and programs of large companies. The implementation of the programs involves the further development of the mineral potential of the region, according to the strategy, 19 zones of advanced development will be formed. They will operate comprehensive measures of state support. They include special conditions of price, tariff, customs, tax and budget policy. Combining the interests of the state and business in the implementation of strategic programs of regional development helps to attract private investment, increases their profitability and increases the level of socio-economic development of the regions.
