MOSCOW, August 30 (Itar-Tass) — The infrastructure, which was created for an APEC summit, will make it possible for the Primorsky Territory to cater 10-12 million tourists every year, develop transport, industrial and maintenance projects, Governor of the Primorsky Territory Vladimir Miklushevsky said during a video hook-up on Thursday. “This gives grounds for serious investments and the transition to the service economy. We are primarily saying about the tourism industry,” he noted.
“We are planning to reach the level of 10-12 million tourists every year for five-ten years,” the governor said, adding that “this is a powerful multiplier for agriculture, transport and service.” “The throughput capacity of the airport reached 20 million people annually with the reserve,” Miklushevsky said.
Recalling that one of five gambling zones is situated in the Primorsky Territory, the governor noted that the number of tourists from other Russian regions will reach 2-2.5 millions from current one million people.
Miklushevsky noted that over 150 kilometres of roads, a modern airport, the second runway, public utilities, the Far Eastern Federal University, the Theatre of Opera and Ballet and a sport complex were built as part of preparations to the APEC summit. Total investments exceeded 600 billion roubles.
“These facilities were built for Vladivostok and the Primorsky Territory. An APEC summit will be held there for a week, but the main task is the development of the Primorsky Territory,” the governor underlined.
