Abstract An analysis of the implementation of the concept of growth poles in the Far East of Russia showed the limited export orientation and the absence in the structure of the emerging growth poles of the propulsive industries that generate a chain reaction of the emergence and growth of industrial centers. It was revealed that in the process of formation of growth poles the role of the regional government’s economic policy is exaggerated, foreign experience in the formation of growth poles is incorrectly interpreted, the role of municipal reform, which led to fragmentation of municipalities and problems with the formation of regional budget revenues, is overestimated. It is shown that the identified problems make it difficult to induce effects when using the concept of growth poles as an instrument of the regional development policy of the Far East.
