Abstract

Absrtact. Prospects for the Chukotka's economic development are associated with several aspects: trends of the Northern Sea Route and its infrastructure revival; renewal of the peninsula energy system; the presence of profitable resource projects for the extraction of, copper, coal, oil and gas, and the need to develop the defence infrastructure on the northeast border of Russia. At the same time, extremely uncomfortable conditions for living and doing business, poor development of transport and social infrastructure, state of the energy system, shortage of skilled labor, environmental restrictions make economic indicators of projects unsatisfactory. Under these conditions, traditional project analysis should be transformed into the analysis of value chains, i.e. bundles of investment projects should be considered simultaneously. The purpose of this work was to understand the possible spatial organization of the Chukotka's economy and economic -mathematical modelling of interrelated perspective projects within the projected centres of economic development. Systematization of data on promising projects of the Chukotka Autonomous District allowed defining the contours of three promising ATPCs - Peveksky, Anadyrsky and Lorinsky. Further, using the author's simulation model, forecasted effects of four technologically related projects were assessed: the copper deposit Peschanka, the gold deposit Kekura, the floating nuclear power plant and the Pevek sea port. The toolkit created by the authors can be used to justify the development priorities of the Chukotka Autonomous District, as well as to assess the various institutional conditions for the implementation of investment projects in the region.
