The Russian Far East was considered throughout Soviet and post-Soviet history both by the scientific community and authorities as a spatial (territorial) economic (socio-economic) system, i.e. as an economic and territorial integrity that should have been developed, moreover, in a complex, maximally using the natural resource potential and features of the economic-geographical position, attracting investments and the population for this. It is in this form that the Russian Far East is represented in the Strategy for Spatial Development. According to the authors, the Russian Far East is not a spatial economic system, but a conglomeration of economies of individual units of administrative-territorial division. This thesis relates to both the sectoral and spatial aspects of the Far Eastern economy. Intersectoral ties within the Russian Far East are extremely limited, occur only in the southern zone of the macroregion, and practically do not extend beyond the fuel and energy complex. We can’t talk about the formation of production chains in the manufacturing sector. The economic space of the Russian Far East is not only extremely heterogeneous, but also extremely fragmented.
