Tourism. An Economy Based on Unique Experiences

Every year more than 170 million tourists from China, Japan, and South Korea travel abroad, where they spend more than USD 250 billion collectively. The Russian Far East possesses a unique selection of recreational resources capable of attracting a significant part of the tourist flow from the Asia-Pacific region. In order to support investment in tourism, advanced special economic zones have been created, an electronic visa was introduced in 2017 for citizens from 18 Asia-Pacific countries and the Middle East entering the Free Port of Vladivostok, entrance to Russian Far Eastern harbours has been significantly simplified for foreign cruise vessels, and special tax incentives have been introduced for tourism organizations operating in the macroregion. Investing in hotel and recreational infrastructure in the Russian Far East — where is there the greatest demand and where are the best economic prospects? How do investor support mechanisms in the tourism sector of the Russian Far East operate? What further steps can the government take to develop incoming and domestic tourism?
