Tourism in the Russian Far East: Fostering New Opportunities
2 September 2016
17:30

With annual revenues of more than USD 1.4 trillion, international tourism is one of today’s fastest growing global export industries. The highest rates of growth are found in the Asia-Pacific Region. The Russian Far East has all the prerequisites for the development of both domestic and international tourism. Millions of travellers with money to spend from the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region represent a powerful investment incentive to projects in the Russian Far East aimed at improving the tourist infrastructure and creating new attractions for travellers. Investors can focus on traditional sports and health and wellness tourism, or tap into the area’s extreme and event tourism potential. A number of investment projects are already under way in tourism-oriented ASEZs in Sakhalin and Kamchatka. How can investment projects in the tourism sector make use of the Russian Far East’s natural environment, geographical features, and economic potential? Based on past projects in the Russian Far East, how well do investments in the tourism industry perform? How can the new development tools (ASEZs, free ports) help attract investment in tourism?
