SHANGHAI, November 16 (Itar-Tass) — Authorities of the Krasnodar territory work on a concept of developing yacht tourism, where a chain of yacht moorages – marines – will be constructed along the Black Sea shore, the territory’s Minister of Resorts and Tourism Evgeny Kudelya told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The minister is participating in the Second Summit of the Russian-ChineseTtourism Forum.
“Presently, we are working on a financial and economic model of the project, and we plan it will be due in 2013, and then we shall present it during the economic forum in Sochi,” he said. “At the current stage, Chinese companies express interest in investing in the project.”
The minister said presently the tourism sector brings over 15 percent o the region’s gross domestic product. “Every year, we accommodate up to 15 million guests, and at a time the resorts serve 600,000 guests,” he said. In order to develop the territory’s attraction for tourists, the authorities plan to improve the engineering infrastructures, to improve quality of hotel services and to serve more guests during low seasons, Kudelya said.
Besides, the minister continued, the Krasnodar territory’s government cooperates with other regions to expand subsidies for air trips from Siberia and the Far East. “We suggest adding categories of people eligible for subsidies as well as adding airports to the programme,” he said. “It would favour not only development of the Krasnodar region’s resorts, but the entire economy of this country.”
