The agreement was signed by the governor of the Krasnodar Territory, Veniamin Kondratyev, and the general director of JSC “Corporation” Tourism.RF “” Sergey Sukhanov.

Dmitry Chernyshenko noted that the Krasnodar Territory is one of the regions of Russia where conditions for year-round recreation have already been created, but its potential has not been fully tapped.

“The President instructed us to accelerate the development of domestic tourism. Under the agreement, the leadership of the region and the corporation “Tourism.RF” set an ambitious task – to build complex all-season world-class resorts in the Kuban at the expense of investors and develop new types of tourism. In the horizon of six years, dozens of new hotels with 50 thousand new rooms should appear in the Krasnodar Territory. First of all, it will be affordable and comfortable accommodation for our tourists. The tools available in the national project “Tourism and Hospitality Industry” allow businesses to ensure an unprecedentedly short payback period for their projects. In the near future, construction will begin, including facilities for the entertainment industry, aqua complexes, and health centers. Embankments will be reconstructed, adjacent territories will be landscaped. The most striking projects are the center of ecological, gastronomic, historical tourism in Abrau-Dyurso or Vasta Valley – a huge new ski tourist resort. There is also a large area in the village of Blagoveshchenskaya in Anapa, which the governor and I visited and discussed in detail with investors last summer. All this creates examples that other investors will follow, using the support tools provided by the Russian government. We expect that due to the implementation of projects, the annual tourist flow to the region will increase by 5 million people, and thousands of new jobs will appear in the subject,” Dmitry Chernyshenko said.

As part of the agreement, it is planned to develop three complex territories, Sergey Sukhanov specified. This is Abrau-Dyurso, where a resort with infrastructure for historical, ecological and gastronomic tourism will appear. It is also planned to reconstruct the historical center of the village of Abrau and the promenade around the lake. The second project is the Vasta Valley resort in the Sochi mountain cluster. The third is a tourist cluster in the village of Blagoveshchenskaya in Anapa.

“With the support of the regional administration, we will launch tourist clusters that will become anchor for the Kuban. In addition, we plan to identify promising tourist areas and are already working on new projects. We will develop types of tourism that are popular and in demand among Russians and guests from abroad,” Sergey Sukhanov added.

The Governor of the Krasnodar Territory, Veniamin Kondratiev, said that the region plans to receive up to 22 million tourists annually by 2030.

“For this, the region must have such a level of service for tourists that they come back to us. The agreement with the Tourism.RF Corporation will be another tool that will allow us to do this. Gastronomic, rural, cognitive, and wine tourism are actively developing in the region today. There are winter beaches. About 40% of vacationers last year came in the off-season. The sanatorium and resort industry is becoming more and more investment attractive. Last year, the investment portfolio of the industry grew three and a half times and reached 108 billion rubles. Our resorts are the pearl of the whole country. As part of the implementation of this agreement, the Krasnodar Territory has every opportunity to raise the sanatorium and resort industry to a qualitatively new level,” added the head of the region.

Sochi Mayor Aleksey Kopaygorodsky recalled that Sochi had long ago moved away from the seasonality factor: “We have created all the conditions for a comfortable and safe holiday at any time. About 7 million tourists visit Sochi annually. The growing figures of the tourist flow confirm the correctness of the vector we have chosen. I am convinced that cooperation with the Tourism.RF corporation will give a new impetus to the development of our unique territories.”

In the near future, the corporation “Tourism.RF” plans to sign a number of agreements with the regions. On some projects, construction will begin this year.
