Tourism should become one of the drivers for the development of the Far East, at the moment Rosturizm and the Turizm.RF corporation are developing an interregional tourist scheme to create a comprehensive tourist plan for the development of the Far Eastern Federal District, the corresponding order was given by the head of the Russian government Mikhail Mishustin. The Profi.Travel editors found out the details of the project.
I must say that these issues were recently discussed at a meeting with the participation of Deputy Prime Ministers Yuri Trutnev, Marat Khusnullin and Dmitry Chernyshenko, as well as the leadership of the Russian Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East and the governors of the Far Eastern regions.
“The task of the Corporation is to ensure the synergy of all participants in a complex process, to integrate and synchronize new tourism projects with existing plans for the development of regions for their further balanced socio-economic development. It is important for us to create comfortable conditions for traveling within the country, so that, other things being equal, tourists give preference not to foreign, but to Russian resorts, ”Chernyshenko noted at the meeting.
According to experts, the regions are still in the process of forming a plan.
“Rostourism sent to the Government of the Kamchatka Territory a draft Roadmap for the development of a tourist interregional scheme of territorial planning in the Far Eastern Federal District. It was approved by the Ministry of Tourism of the Kamchatka Territory without comments, “- said Minister of Tourism of the Kamchatka Territory Natalia Maksimenkoadding that now an interdepartmental working group is being created, and executors are being selected. “We are waiting for further instructions while we are monitoring our territory as a whole in the Kamchatka Territory in terms of the existing, under construction and required infrastructure,” Maksimenko summed up.
The work on monitoring and analyzing the materials that will serve as the basis for creating the master plan is already being carried out in the Primorsky Territory. “We have already collected a pool of experts, we are selecting those territories that should be included in the master plan and are the most attractive for tourism and investment, those territories that have both a recreational resource and an appropriate amount of related infrastructure, both transport and engineering. We are creating a list of free land plots, we have developed several cluster territories, including a new cluster – “Land of the Leopard” in the very south of the region “, – shared Deputy Prime Minister of the Primorsky Territory Konstantin Shestakov…
According to him, practice has shown that Primorye and Sakhalin, Kamchatka, Irkutsk region, Yakutia can work in good tandem. “Together with our partners, we are considering the creation of a joint event product, which would include, for example, gastronomic events in the Primorsky Territory and ethnic events in Yakutia. There are such plans for all regions, “Shestakov added. One of the key opportunities should be the Far Eastern cruise line using expedition ships, which will connect Primorye, Sakhalin and Kamchatka. Each region is already creating infrastructure for it, for example, Kamchatka has done this, Sakhalin is also following this path, but the final product has not yet been formed.
Only important. For the pros only.
