The board of directors of the Turizm.RF corporation chaired by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernyshenko approved the corporation’s participation in the authorized capital of the first 53 investment projects.

Meeting of the Board of Directors of the Corporation “Tourism.RF” under the leadership of Dmitry Chernyshenko

The meeting was attended by Minister of Construction, Housing and Communal Services Irek Fayzullin, Deputy Minister of Economic Development Sergei Galkin, Head of the Federal Property Management Agency Vadim Yakovenko, Deputy Minister of Finance Pavel Kadochnikov, Governor of the Kamchatka Territory Vladimir Solodov, Head of the Republic of Adygea Murat Kumpilov.

At the meeting, complex master plans for resorts in Adygea and Kamchatka prepared by the corporation were presented.

“Today, the board of directors of the Turizm.RF corporation approved the launch of the first 53 investment projects from next year, which I reported to the President last week. They will make it possible to create in 27 regions of the country in the near future affordable resorts for our citizens, to provide an increase in 15 thousand jobs and to increase the total tourist flow in all regions by 10.5 million people, ”said Dmitry Chernyshenko.

The corporation expects to allocate 36.5 billion rubles for the construction of tourist facilities, the total cost of the implementation of all projects is 387 billion rubles. Part of these funds – 17.9 billion – has already been received by the corporation.

The corporation will support the projects in the form of a contribution to the authorized capital of specially created project companies. The corporation supports the investor right up to the commissioning of facilities, after which it can sell its share to the investor at market value, and reinvest the funds in the following projects.

According to the supervising deputy prime minister, high-quality rooms will appear around Lake Baikal and in Altai, in Krasnodar and Perm regions, in Sheregesh, Adygea and Kamchatka, in many other regions with which the corporation has agreements.

“I would like to note that these 53 projects, selected out of 400 applications, are complex – they are designed to ensure job growth, GRP growth and, in general, a breakthrough in regional economies. In 2022–2023, at least 10 tourist areas with a capacity of 2.5 thousand beds will be commissioned, and in total, according to the results of the implementation of all projects, it is planned to create 210 thousand rooms. At the same time, for each state ruble, the corporation attracted about 10 rubles of private investment. This is a very good multiplier. It is important that the budget money, which facilitates the work of business in the country, is repayable. As the projects are launched, they will re-invest in the creation of facilities according to the plan of the corporation where they are most in demand by our tourists. Let me remind you that according to the Tourism and Hospitality Industry National Project, by 2030 we must create such conditions to double the number of trips around the country – up to 140 million a year, ”Dmitry Chernyshenko noted.

“The government has already contributed 17.9 billion rubles to the authorized capital of the corporation. It is these funds that we will direct to special design companies that will be created to implement the first 53 projects already at the beginning of 2022. The geography of the projects is very interesting: these are Altai, the Voronezh region, Baikal and the Tula region, Kamchatka and many other regions that are ready to develop infrastructure. I would like to note that the window of opportunities for investors is open, we will continue to expand the investment program in 2022, as well as in subsequent years to meet the targets of the national project, ”said Sergei Sukhanov, General Director of the Turizm.RF corporation.

As part of the orchestration of the national project, the corporation prepared and sent to the Ministry of Construction a list of infrastructure facilities for the next three years. In 2022 alone, 12 billion rubles are planned for the creation of roads to tourist facilities and communications under construction.

“It is important that today the master plan of the flagship project“ Three Volcanoes ”for the Kamchatka Territory was approved. This is a vast territory between the volcanoes – Mutnovsky, Vilyuchinsky and Gorely. The construction of infrastructure – roads, water supply systems and telecommunication lines – will create conditions for attracting large investments. The project involves the creation of 1,000 rooms, 30 km of ski slopes, construction of a lift to the top of the volcano, berths for cruise liners and the necessary network of ground infrastructure, ”said Vladimir Solodov.

Corporation “Tourism.RF” was created on behalf of the Chairman of the Government Mikhail Mishustin to attract investment in the construction of tourist facilities by reducing the investment and credit burden on projects implemented in the tourism sector. The corporation also directs funds to finance the development of master plans for tourist areas, which will make it possible to approach the construction of tourism infrastructure systematically, taking into account many factors – from economic and social to environmental.
