The Far East Development Corporation, Dallesprom and Volgatech will train personnel for the forestry industry of the Far East

The Far East and Arctic Development Corporation (KRDV) has entered into a cooperation agreement with the Dallesprom company and the Volga State Technological University (Volgatekh). The tripartite agreement is aimed at developing solutions for staffing young specialists in the forestry industry of the Far East.

KRDV and Dallesprom will promote the introduction of new technologies and production development, including within the Khabarovsk priority development territory, and Volgatech will be involved in the process of transferring knowledge and training young people. Volgatech specialists emphasize that for the development of the forestry industry in the Far East and the Arctic, it is necessary to actively use unmanned aerial systems. This is due to the fact that UAVs can effectively control forest fires, prevent illegal logging, and solve problems of taxation and forest management.

Dallesprom Holding pays great attention to supporting graduates of specialized areas. The company offers various support measures both for students (scholarships, paid internships and corporate events) and for professionals who are just starting their careers. The company noted that for the summer period of 2024, it is planned to employ 40 students as part of the Student Team program.

Yuri Prokhorov, Director of the Human Resources Development Department of the KRDV: “Involving young people and leading Russian scientific and educational organizations in the forestry industry is an important step in staffing with qualified specialists. The development of cooperation between business structures and educational institutions, the formation of industry consortia is a modern trend and a popular format of activity. Such interaction makes it possible to train personnel for residents of preferential regimes on the basis of a modern scientific base, taking into account the requirements and current business challenges. The use of highly intelligent developments in the forestry industry, such as unmanned aerial systems, will increase labor productivity, reduce risks and business costs, and will play a positive role in creating modern and technologically advanced jobs.”.

Far Eastern and Arctic residents who implement investment projects within the framework of special economic regimes pay great attention to working with youth and employing young specialists in enterprises of priority sectors of the economy.
