SHANGHAI, November 16 (Itar-Tass) — The Altai Territory is ready to offer to the Chinese investors construction sites for tourism centres, Vice-Governor of the Altai Territory Mikhail Shchetinin said at the second summit of the Russian-Chinese tourism forum here on Friday.
“Seventeen residents were registered in the special economic zone Biryuzovaya Katun today,” he said. “We are ready to offer investment grounds for the construction of several tourism facilities, particularly the construction of a congress centre and hotels,” he said. “We are ready to come to terms and work individually with each investor,” Shchetinin pledged.
The vice-governor recalled that “the Altai Territory was included in the federal targeted program for the development of domestic and foreign tourism in Russia with two tourism clusters – Belokurikha and the Golden Gates of Altai.” “Three residents were registered in the latter (the Golden Gates of Altai – Itar-Tass). I believe that we will see concrete facilities already next year,” Shchetinin noted. Meanwhile, “the feasibility study is completed for a new tourism site Belokurikha-2, which will be a highland resort with hot thermal springs,” he said.
“Now the Altai Territory can admit up to 60,000 tourists at the same time, but with due account of a growing number of tourists the region can attract about 3.5 million holidaymakers by 2025,” Shchetinin underlined.
