The tourism industry of the Kamchatka Territory will receive additional government support measures. In the near future, regional authorities will send more than 40 million rubles to help hotels, catering points, shipowners organizing boat trips, and travel agencies.

According to the interim governor Vladimir Solodov, after additional calculations, the authorities plan to introduce incentives for the tourism industry on electricity and thermal water at recreation centers. According to the press service of the regional government, in the near future, regional tour operators will receive funding for organizing social tours for certain categories of citizens, including veterans of the Great Patriotic War and military operations, disabled people, large families, orphans. Companies will be reimbursed up to 90% of the actual costs incurred.

As the head of the Agency for Tourism and External Relations of the Kamchatka Territory Elena Stratonova said, due to the difficult epidemiological situation, it was necessary to postpone the conduct of social tours from spring to later periods. In the near future, a competitive selection of applications from tour operators will take place. In the near future, through the Ministry of Investments and the Small and Medium Business Support Fund, support in the form of subsidies will be received by organizations working in the field of tourism and related industries.

Owners of small vessels registered in the Maritime Register will also receive additional support. They are partially compensated for the costs of paying rental payments for parking on land and water. For representatives of the tourism industry, they intend to conduct educational distance online courses and a marketing campaign to expand the autumn and winter tourist seasons in 2020.
