VLADIVOSTOK, September 26 (Itar-Tass) —— Major foreign companies and well-known experts will be attracted to work out a concept of the creation and development of a tourist-recreation special economic zone on the territory of Russky Island in Vladivostok.
As ITAR-TASS learnt at the press centre of the region’s administration on Monday, it was decided to attract, in particular, the Singapore company Master Consult Service to work out the concept. The company is engaged in working outs strategies of development of tourism and analysing the international tourist market. It is planned to attract consultants from France, Spain and China to work out alternative variants of the concept of development of Russky Island and a strategic master-plan.
The drafting of the concept will be carried out in two stages - - the preparation of analytical materials and working out of architectural and building decisions.
The tourist-recreation special economic zone “Russky Island” is created in the Primorsky Territory in accordance with the Russian government’s decision as of March, 2010. There are fortifications of the Vladivostok Fortress and many suitable bays on the island, which makes it possible to develop water sports, organize sea journeys in Amur Bay.
In 2012, an APEC summit will be held on Russky Island. A bridge across Eastern Bosphorus Strait, which will connect the island with the mainland part of Vladivostok, facilities of the Far Eastern Federal University and a Primorsky oceanarium are being built within the framework of the preparation for it.
At present, there are 13 special tourist economic zones in Russia.
