MOSCOW, February 7 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian and EU business communities stand for visa-free travel, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday, referring to the Brussels-hosted seminar “Russia: Intellectual Tourism” organized by the European Association of Tour Operators with support from the Russian delegation to the European Union.
“The participants discussed prospects of Russia-EU visa-free travel, problems related to the EU visa policy and the development of Russia’s tourism sector,” the ministry said. “Senior officials for the Russia-EU visa-free dialog affirmed a positive inclination to the dynamic and efficient taking of joint steps towards Russia-EU visa-free travel. The seminar showed that Russian and EU business communities were interested in broadening the capacities of tourist markets with further simplification of visa formalities and visa-free travel for citizens of Russia and the European Union.”
Russian Foreign Ministry Ambassador Anvar Azimov, European Commission Director General for Home Affairs Stefano Manservisi, and representatives of tourist, hospitality, transport, museum and other business segments from Germany, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, Russia and Ukraine attended the seminar.
