There are no competitors for tourism in Kamchatka - Shereykin

Deputy Minister of the Russian Federation for the Development of the Far East Maxim Shereikin took part in the work of the international investment forum "Far East-2014", the press service of the Ministry for the Development of the Russian Far East reports.

The delegates of the forum discuss the transport potential of the Far East, the prospects for the agro-industry, the fisheries complex, energy, medicine, sports and tourism. The last Maxim Shereykin considers the obvious competitive advantage of Kamchatka.

- Kamchatka has competitors in fish, and in subsoil, too. And there are no competitors in tourism. Compared to those who go on vacation to China, Kamchatka has a different target audience: it is relatively expensive, but it is also more profitable for travel companies. We need to develop infrastructure. You need to understand that the tourist flow, when it starts to grow, will need to be properly managed in order to preserve the natural advantages of the Kamchatka Territory. Twice as many cruise liners can enter Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, but this requires a quay wall, a sea terminal complex and a modern border checkpoint. It is important that tourists will be followed by people who will see other competitive advantages in Kamchatka. Through tourism, you can discover the world - the world of new investors, - said Maxim Shereykin during an interview with reporters.

In general, according to the deputy minister, the policy of the Ministry of the East is aimed at creating new opportunities and conditions for business to quickly implement investment projects. This should contribute to the emergence of new jobs and increased tax deductions.
