KISLOVODSK, June 18 (Itar-Tass) —— Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev instructed head of the Stavropol territory Valery Zerenkov to give attention to the development of industry and tourism aside from agriculture.
“The territory is ideally suited to agriculture, but it is not right to engage in agriculture alone, so I hope you will be giving attention in future also to industry, and, which is no less important, to the development of tourism,” Medvedev said at the meeting with Valery Zerenkov in Kislovodsk on Monday.
The premier stressed that the Stavropol territory has “special places very attractive to a large number of our people and also to foreigners.” “It is very important to create the infrastructure,” Medvedev went on. “It is quite good in some places and very week in others. Investment must be made into this sphere,” the premier noted.
He said the personnel policy is also important. “Personnel must be trained. It seems apparent that there is a need of personnel for the tourism industry. This is serious work. Not many residents in your region and in other regions, regrettably, are ready to engage in this. Educational establishments must be opened,” he said.
Zerenkov, in his turn, pointed out that there is a university in Stavropol that has the department for the development of tourism and hotel service.
“You know, higher educational establishments usually train managers but there is also a need in people capable of manual work in this sphere. So there is a need in secondary educational establishments to train specialists for tourism and hotel service,” Medvedev said.
