The New Siberia

The New Siberia

(p.238) Chapter Sixteen The New Siberia

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter considers the issues and opportunities for people in Siberia today. It addresses issues such as the extent to which the very richness of Siberian resources cause an imbalance in the economy, as the oil and energy sector now predominate to the detriment of other industries; and the future sustainability of this model: the resources are not infinite and they are in locations which are expensive to exploit and maintain. Siberia also has access to the markets of the Far East, in particular Japan and China, through Vladivostok and the towns along its enormous border with China. There is a recognition that Siberia must look outwards, having artificially had its economy focused internally in the Soviet period. There is also a need for significant investments in Siberia's communications and infrastructure.

Keywords:   Siberia, Siberian history, USSR, economic collapse, oil, gas
