East Siberian economic region on the map of Russia

In this area of plateaus, mountains, and river basins, the major cities—Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Ulan-Ude, and Chita—are located along the Trans-Siberian Railroad. A branch line links Ulan-Ude with Mongolia and Beijing, China. There are hydroelectric stations at Bratsk, Krasnoyarsk, and Irkutsk. Coal, gold, graphite, iron ore, aluminum ore, zinc, and lead are mined in the area, and livestock is raised. [1]


Socio-economic indicators

This sparsely populated region between Europe and Asia has high wage levels and also a relatively large portion of employees in the new private sector. Productivity is also high by Russian standards.

It ranks especially low in the migration of people into the region and population change, and in the expectation of life to improve and evaluation of the national economy. [2]
