The Bulunsky district will have ample opportunities for development, including the opening of a port in Naiba Point in the future and the creation of a large transport and logistics center for the entire Northern Sea Route. The modernization of the port is planned to be carried out in three directions. These are the reconstruction of the existing port in Tiksi, the construction of a new deep-water terminal in Naiba Point and the construction of a passenger terminal in the Neelovo area to provide socially significant transportation services and promote cruise tourism.

The project will also help for the development of mineral deposits, road network, shipbuilding, energy, and social infrastructure.
