July 7 meeting with reporters the governor of St. Petersburg said that the St. Petersburg experts (of course, close to the Smolny), initiated the development of economic and social studies for the association. Consider only one direction - the functioning of the transport and logistics sector. The leading element of this complex are the seaports in the Russian Gulf of Finland.

In addition to St. Amazon insists that this is the case. Petersburg, other ports located in the Leningrad region. The area naturally proud of the fact that in recent years went into operation new sea port in Primorsk, Vysotsk and Ust-Luga.
