Kirill Soloveichik, Chairman of the St. Petersburg Committee for Industrial Policy, Innovation and Trade, said that unused land plots belonging to the Toyota automobile plant in St. Petersburg will be transferred to the city to create an industrial park.
We asked the city for approval from the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation to separate the unused part of the territory of the Toyota plant <…> from the main enterprise. <…> On the territory external to him [заводу] we, as a city, will develop a large industrial park as a supplier park.
The territory will be divided into plots of two hectares for “quick targeted provision of plots to industrial enterprises that will need land resources.” One of the buildings at the General Motors site is being used to create a single training site for industrial workers for the entire city.
Our education system has money for this. As part of the championship of professional excellence, we would like to constantly train personnel, because we have a fairly large deficit.
At the beginning of the Toyota year completed the procedure for the dismissal of employees of the plant in St. Petersburg, leaving 76 people. A month ago it was reported that for the restart of production at this site Chinese and Iranian companies are ready to take on.
