It shows that the perspective plans of development of the Far Eastern regions practically ignore the principles of green economy. The article considers the actual situation in the development of priority social and economic development areas in the Khabarovsk Krai.
Conclusions. The development of a green economy of regions with a high share of raw materials in the structure of the economy introduces fundamentally new approaches to the formation of a strategy for their development, focused on strengthening the importance of the ecosystem organization of economic activities.
