MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko held a working meeting with the Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov.
It discussed the development of tourism and research projects in the Kamchatka Territory.
On behalf of the Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin, in May this year, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko paid a working visit to Kamchatka to study the issue of tourism development in the region. During this time, work has been done in terms of creating a tourist infrastructure and increasing tourist flow.
“Today we have significant results based on the results of the tourist season. The tourist flow to the Valley of Geysers increased by 60% – from 5 to 8 thousand and reached a historical maximum. Thanks to the administration of the region and the reserve, the first steps were taken to expand the infrastructure – the existing paths were repaired, new paths and sites were prepared. Next year, the circular tourist route Petropavlovsk – Milkovo – Valley of Geysers – Zhupanovo will be launched in test mode. The issue of increasing the transport accessibility of the most attractive places in the region for both tourists and local residents remains topical, ”noted Dmitry Chernyshenko.
“Tomorrow we will solemnly open 300 km of a new road from Petropavlovsk to Milkovo, which will increase the transport accessibility of settlements for citizens and will allow us to implement a circular route through the Valley of Geysers. By the next season, at the expense of investors and the federal budget, the construction of new guest houses, additional trails and related tourist infrastructure will be completed. The Ministry of Natural Resources has allocated funds for the creation of additional helipads in the Valley of Geysers, ”said Vladimir Solodov.
In the near future, the Kamchatka Territory plans to conclude an agreement with the “Tourism.RF” corporation, within the framework of which the instruments of the “Tourism and Hospitality Industry” national project will finance the construction of the infrastructure of the “Three Volcanoes” resort and other tourism projects of the region.
Dmitry Chernyshenko also noted the work of the region to create a laboratory “Climate and Ocean” within the framework of a world-class scientific and educational center. It will unite the leading universities and scientific organizations of the Kamchatka Territory and the Far Eastern Federal District. “Thanks to the laboratory, monitoring of the ecological situation and climatic changes in the world ocean will be carried out – these are topical issues on the international agenda. The next step is to create a carbon offshore polygon. We will instruct the Ministry of Science to work out, together with the region, the necessary support in this direction, ”the Deputy Prime Minister added.
Vladimir Solodov said that new environmental phenomena are now being observed throughout the Pacific Ocean, so the laboratory’s research will be in demand in other regions of the Far East and foreign countries.
During the meeting, the Governor of the Kamchatka Territory also presented to Dmitry Chernyshenko an investment project for the construction of a tourist and recreational complex “Petropavlovskaya Gavan” with an international yacht port and a project for the reconstruction of the center of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, and also expressed his readiness to join the work on the concept of cruise tourism.
