MOSCOW, April 14 (Itar-Tass) —— Representatives of the Russian-French joint venture International Caucasus Development and specialists from the North Caucasus Resorts public company (KSK) visited the sites of two yet-to-be built health resorts in the Caucasus – Mamison and Matlas (in North Ossetia and Dagestan) this week.
“The purpose of the working trip was comprehensive evaluation of the projects from the standpoint of economic, ecological, technical, social, infrastructural and architectural parameters,” the Russian company’s press-service told Itar-Tass.
The French specialists also had a chance to see on site the concept of developing the resort territories and the effectiveness of the technical solutions. In particular, they studied the geological features of the terrain and the technogenic and natural risks, such as mudflow and avalanche dangers. Apart from the mountain territories the specialists examined the coastal part of the cluster on the Caspian sea.
“Our counterparts studied a number of the existing beach tourist infrastructures and noted the great potential of the coastal cluster in Dagestan,” the KSK said. Also, the representatives of the Russian-French venture took note of the high ecological and cultural potential of the project, which would allow for effectively developing ecological and educational tourism.”
