GROZNY, December 28, 20:09 /ITAR-TASS/. The Veduchi ski resort will be started to be built in Itum-Kalinsky district of Chechnya in March 2014, Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov said on Saturday.
An agreement to this effect has been reached at a meeting between Kadyrov, Minister of Industry and Energy Galas Taimaskhanov and businessman Ruslan Baisarov.
Taimaskhanov and Baisarov signed a roadmap with director-general of North Caucasus Resorts Corporation Sergei Vereshchagin. Under the roadmap, the resort will be begun building in March 2014, Kadyrov said.
“Bairsarov, who is the key investor, says there are no problems with finances. The Veduchi resort is one of the best ski resorts in Europe. It will allow us to create up to 7,000 jobs. Specialists are being trained now. I’ve instructed to create favourable conditions for investors in order to solve any problems immediately,” the Chechen president said.
He also said Baisarov’s geological surveys proved that there are stocks of gold, silver and copper in the mountains.
The project envisages making over 46 kilometres of pistes and constructing a 400-room hotel. The Veduchi ski resort will be located on the area of about 800 hectares at the altitude of 2,850 metres and the top spot of 3,500 metres above sea level.
