Кабмин утвердил финплан АМПУ на 2017 год

Кабинет министров Украины утвердил финансовый план ГП «Администрация морских портов Украины» на 2017 год. Документ был принят 12 июля 2017 года на заседании Кабинета министров Украины.

 

Финансовый план предусматривает увеличение уровня чистого дохода предприятия на 6,3% по сравнению с 2016 годом; планируется, что этот показатель составит 7,8 млрд грн. Прогнозный показатель чистой прибыли ожидается на уровне 3,2 млрд грн. Этому будет способствовать ожидаемое увеличение грузопереработки в портах с планируемым объемом 123,1 млн тонн. Данные прогнозные показатели 2017 года больше прошлогодних параметров на 4 %, когда в портах Украины было обработано 118,8 млн тонн грузов.

 

«Согласование ключевого финансового документа портовой отрасли открывает возможность инвестирования в запланированные на этот год проекты в полном объеме, насколько это возможно с учетом того, что прошло уже полгода. АМПУ ожидает получить бОльший доход, чем в предыдущий период. Но значение имеет не процент роста дохода, а то что по максимуму мы направим эти средства в строительство новых объектов и модернизацию существующих. Таким образом, по сравнению с предыдущими периодами наша чистая прибыль будет меньше, но эти средства не будут пылиться на счетах, а трансформируются в объекты портовой инфраструктуры», - отметил руководитель АМПУ Райвис Вецкаганс.

 

Капитальные инвестиции АМПУ в 2017 году составят 3,9 млрд грн. Основными направлениями будут ремонт и модернизация портовой инфраструктуры (63% от общей суммы), строительство новых объектов (10%) и приобретение основных средств (25%). «Теперь мы можем смело браться за проекты, зафиксированные в Плане приоритетных действий – дноуглубление, строительство и реконструкцию причалов в Южном и Черноморске, Одессе, Николаеве и Мариуполе, обновление флота и пр.», - добавил руководитель АМПУ.

 

В 2017 году АМПУ планирует выплатить 4,4 млрд грн налогов в пользу государства, что эквивалентно 57% чистого дохода компании. Из них 88% составят выплаты в пользу государственного бюджета.

 

Напомним, что финансовый план имеет стратегическое значение для портовой отрасли, а также определяет развитие предприятия на текущий год, обеспечивая возможность выполнения АМПУ своих функций, в том числе реконструкцию и строительство объектов портовой инфраструктуры, безопасность мореплавания  и пр.

According to the Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine, chief military Prosecutor A.

The main objectives in port industry and their solutions were underlined in USPA

(from the materials of the press conference of the SE “USPA” CEO Andrey Amelin on  March 18, 2015, Odesa).

 

Among the priorities in the port industry there are: capital fund renewal, improvement of the regulatory basis, the development of port infrastructure, of electronic document management and the establishment of the FEZ in Ukrainian sea ports. About the tasks and ways of development of the port economy, the SE “USPA” CEO Andrey Amelin told during the press conference

 

 "Today, moral and physical depreciation of fixed assets at seaports is from 80% to 90%. Therefore, there is no other choice but to exclude state stevedoring companies -  sea trading ports from the list of objects of state property that are not a subject to privatization. Next it is needed to look for the most balanced and effective solutions for each specific CSP (commercial sea port) in cooperation with the specialists, local authorities, groups of enterprises",- underlined the CEO of the enterprise.

 

Also among the primary steps to improve the regulatory basis of the port industry and attracting investments, CEO has allocated the necessary changes to several laws, including the Laws "On sea ports of Ukraine", "On management of state property", etc.

 

"All the necessary draft documents Has been already prepared by USPA specialists and require political will and inclusion in regulatory procedure",- said Andrey Amelin.

 

To improve the operation of state enterprises, there is an urgent need for decentralization and optimization of the control system. We are talking about changing the approval of the financial plan, procurement, disposition of property. In particular, due to the complex and long procedure of approval of the financial plan, the company failed to perform the full scope of works on development of infrastructure in the past year.

 

To improve control procedures, USPA seaports works on further implementation of the Information system of the port community, and participates in the reduction of the activity of the control bodies to the European standards.

 

Also, to optimize the procedures of obtaining permits on performing dredging, the most urgent is the issue concerning amending the Decree of CMU as of 12.07.2005 No. 557, which regulates the procedure mentioned.

 

At the same time, a comprehensive solution for many problems of the industry will be the creation of special (free) economic zones in all the seaports of the country. The mechanism of the FEZ will provide additional investment attractiveness, as well as sustainable development of port areas for the long term period.

 

"The construction of modern infrastructure at the territories of seaports is a progressive step, repeatedly tested in the leading ports of the world. When creating FEZ investor must receive a clear road map for approval of investment project, the ability to transparently acquire the land for the period of implementation of the project and have a clear right to protect their investment. This partnership of state and private sector will benefit all," said Andrey Amelin.

This dredging works created the conditions for safe acceptance and servicing of heavy Capesize type vessels with a draft of 18.5 meters. Thus, from July to December, the port additionally received 7.5 million dollars.  
Also maintenance dredging in the port area and on the approach channel of Berdyansk sea port during the past year was carried out. The excavating was carried by own means, i.e. with a help of dredger "Meotida". 200 thousand cubic meters of soil was extracted, and the conditions for the safe calling of vessels with a draught of 7.5 meters were created.

The dredger "Ingulskij" performed dredging in a volume of 80 thousand cubic meters (including the approach channel that is 45 cubic meters and the water area which is 35 thousand cubic meters). Thanks to the dredging the operation of the ferry line Skadovsk-Zonguldak was restored.

 

It must be underlined that a performance of large-scale dredging works became possible due to centralized system management of these works and due to own specialized USPA fleet.

 

“Today the works are being performed in large ports and harbors, which couldn’t allow earlier such expensive works as dredging and even the support of nominal characteristics. This is an obvious example of realization by Ukrainian Sea Ports Authority one of the main goals of its creation, overseen by the Law “On Ukrainian sea ports”, - commented CEO of the SE “USPA” Andrej Amelin

The USPA specialists took part in the meeting of the interdepartmental working group on trade facilitation

On February 26, a regular meeting of the interdepartmental working group (IWG) was held Kiev. The meeting was attended by members of the working group, including all the ministries and departments whose competence includes issues of good and vehicle documentation at the border, representatives of the European economic Commission of the United Nations and international experts. On the whole, there were approximately 50 people.

 

Head of Strategic Development of the SE “USPA”, Viacheslav  Voronoj raised such questions:

 

1. Environmental declarations documentation on 100% of the cargo. "Although an exhaustive list of goods, which should be registered by the environmental Declaration, is specified in the CMU Resolution No. 1031 as of 05.10.2011, still, the ecologists in the ports require the Declaration of all types of cargo. During the meeting we were able to reach an understanding on this issue with the Ministry of environment. Representatives of the office after receipt of the Protocol IWG promised to regulate this issue. In addition, it is not clear why this Declaration is provided by the decree of the Ministry of environment exclusively for sea checkpoints. Therefore, we will insist later on complete abolition of this document," commented V. Voronoj.

 

2. The need for equipment of marine terminal with special devices of radiological control and connection to the information system of the port community (ISPS) of the environmental department when cargo documentation  for turnout  from  the checkpoint that would allow to perform radiological control in automatic mode without participation of the freight forwarder. "To resolve this issue, 3 decrees of the Ministry of environment must be changed. We have prepared and passed the projects to the Ministry of environment for approval. These 2 steps, if they are supported by the Ministry of environment, will help in principle forwarders not to cross with officials representing environmental services in the ports. Thus, if the first leaders of this Ministry has a desire to optimize, to deregulate and reform, there is a real opportunity to show it. Moreover, a large part of the preparatory work has been completed by the SE “USPA”,- said V. Voronoj.

 

3. "One of the most fundamental issues is the integration of ISPS with ASAUR (customs information base) that will allow to run an approval of an order (customs permission for loading the container on the vehicle and the assignment of the form control in automatic mode. I.e. if ASAUR did not work, it isn’t necessary to run an approval. Customs should consider this proposal until April," commented V. Voronoj.

 

4. Also during the meeting the issue of granting of the original vet certificates on discharging from a vessel was discussed, that does not always arrive on time, that causes the agent to have problems with getting permission to unload the ship. This is a question on which we are fighting for over a year and reached the Cabinet. Vitalij Vladimirovich Boshinskij, Deputy Chairman of the state veterinary and phytosanitary service, who was present at the cab, reported willingness to work with a copy, certified by a digital signature in ISPS. For this it is needed to add another module in ISPS for registration of ships in the free practice mode that is not a problem.
Still a number of important issues considered. It is needed to wait the minutes of the meeting in order to decide on further our actions," said V. Voronoj.
