Abstract The analysis of the transformation of the economy of the Jewish Autonomous Region for the period 1990–2020 is carried out. Based on the study of the dynamics and qualitative characteristics of industrial production, the author distinguishes four stages of economic transformations. At the present stage, transformational features of the formation of a resource economy in the region are manifested. This is facilitated by the implementation of promising mineral projects for the extraction and primary processing of iron ore; graphite, tin, manganese ores, and brucite. A preliminary assessment of the direct contribution of projects to the economy of the region confirms their significant importance for the growth of tax revenues and the scale of the economy. At the same time, the analysis of the direct and indirect effects of the projects showed their weak current impact on the development of the existing economic system of the region. The transition from the direct growth of the region’s economy to its development is possible due to the expansion of mining projects with new production facilities for deeper processing of extracted resources. As an example of such development, the author considers the widely discussed project of metallurgical production of direct reduced iron based on the products of Kimkano-Sutarsky Mining and Processing Plant LLC as part of the formation of a metallurgical cluster in the south of the Russian Far East. This project is fully consistent with the state intentions to develop both the macroregion as a whole and individual regions. However, due to the existing functional and technological limitations, such large-scale processing projects with subsequent integration into the economy of the extracted mineral resources can be carried out exclusively within the framework of state strategic initiatives and the costs embodying them.
