The business and power of Primorye will unite efforts to attract tourists

How to develop inbound tourism in Primorye, businessmen and representatives of the Primorsky Territory Administration discussed at the round table “Development of foreign economic relations with the APR countries. The potential of the tourist complex of Primorye ”, the press service of the governor said.

The organizers of the event are the Agency for Strategic Initiatives and the Primorsky Export Center.

During the event, it was noted that at present, in Primorye, as elsewhere in Russia, outbound tourism is more developed than inbound tourism.

According to Nikolai Dubinin, head of the Department of Economics and Strategic Development of Primorsky Krai, in order to fulfill the task of developing inbound tourism, it is necessary to tap the full potential of the region.

“In order to develop the inbound flow of tourists up to 10 million a year, this task was set by the Governor of the region, it is necessary to use the potential of Primorye, its geographical location, unique nature,” he stressed.

Today, two large tourism projects are under construction in Primorye - a gambling zone and an oceanarium on Russky Island. However, these facilities should acquire additional infrastructure that will attract the main visitors.

“There should be a union of enterprising entrepreneurs who will do this. And we will be ready to consider their proposals, ”Nikolai Dubinin noted.

The participants of the roundtable agreed that in the region it is necessary to develop the logistics component, the hotel chain, but it needs to be done together.

Representatives of travel companies stressed that even now tourists from the APR visit branded places, which created more than 20. Such areas of Primorye as Kirov, Shkotovsky, Mikhailovsky, Yakovlevsky, Khasansky, Partizansky, Spassky, as well as Arsenyev, Nakhodka and Ussuriisk are able to attract tourists with their ecological, natural and cultural riches.

Agricultural tourism is also gaining momentum in Primorye. People come to the villages with pleasure. Here they get everything that they lack so much in the cities - from environmentally friendly products to acquaintance with crafts and crafts unknown to them.

Another promising area of ​​tourism development, according to the participants in the meeting, can be event tourism. In September, the region took part for the first time in the "Russian Event Awards 2014", which is awarded for achievements in the development of the event tourism industry.

“A tourist must understand why he is going here. And a cultural event that becomes an event can attract him. For example, we were convinced of this at the last Fashion Week - tourists from Korea, Singapore came to us, fashion designers found us, ”said Yulia Barkhanova, producer of cultural projects.

Representatives of the regional administration noted that they are ready to consider the ideas of entrepreneurs, in case of need even help to cooperate with authorities of other countries.
