Yuri Trutnev announced state support to investors who will be engaged in the creation of tourism infrastructure in the recreational zones of specially protected natural areas (SPNA). They may be subject to preferential regimes already existing in the region.

The Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation should prepare proposals for the development of mechanisms for attracting investors who would undertake the creation of conditions and opportunities for recreation in the recreational zones of national parks on the territory of the Far Eastern Federal District. This is the result of the meeting held in Khabarovsk on the development of protected areas of federal significance in the Far East, chaired by Yuri Trutnev. In the Far East, there are 68 specially protected natural areas of federal significance, out of 336 existing in the country. In the first nine months of 2021, more than 261 thousand Russians visited them. The Ministry of Natural Resources notes the growing interest of residents and guests of the Far East in visiting unique natural corners, but many are frightened off by the lack of basic amenities in national parks and reserves - from toilets to the opportunity to buy souvenirs and taste local cuisine. At the same time, as Yuri Trutnev, Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation, Presidential Plenipotentiary in the Far Eastern Federal District, emphasized, insufficient funds are allocated for the development of the protected areas themselves, and it will not be possible to build the facilities necessary for tourists only on budget funds.

“For these purposes - 313 million rubles for the Russian Federation for the creation of infrastructure in protected areas, - the plenipotentiary said, - we would like some part to come to the Far East. What part of 313 million rubles? What is 313 million rubles in the system of specially protected natural areas? What will we create there? ”- said the plenipotentiary.

For investors willing to invest in the development of recreational areas, the state is ready to offer support tools that are already working in the Far East - tax preferences and subsidies in the construction of infrastructure. Specific parameters of state support, as well as requirements for the infrastructure itself and the process of its creation, should be formulated in the near future and submitted to the "Council of the Far Eastern District" - a meeting of regional governors chaired by Yuri Trutnev.

“The fact is that, of course, there is a big difference - to develop mineral deposits somewhere or create infrastructure in recreational areas,” he said. “You know, it seems to me that we will come to an agreement. Why? We have a lot of companies. We are currently implementing more than 2,6 thousand investment projects in the Far East. Of these, more than 50 with a volume of (declared) investments of more than 10 billion rubles. And the people who earn money here in the country, they should also think about how to create good living conditions in the country, good conditions for recreation. "

As an example, the plenipotentiary cited the project of a year-round resort park of international class "Three Volcanoes", which will be created in the region of the Mutnovsky, Vilyuchinsky and Gorely volcanoes in Kamchatka. It will include 40 km of ski slopes with a lift to the Vilyuchinsky volcano. Tourists will be able to check into 1 hotel rooms.
