Sports in the Far East: Creating New Opportunities
Infrastructure is an issue. The question of master plans for cities in the Far East was raised yesterday at a meeting of the State Council Presidium [a meeting of the State Council Presidium on the development of tourism in the Russian Federation was held on 7 September at the Eastern Economic Forum – ed.]. They envisage recreation areas and tourist trails. <...> I think that it is important for the Ministry of Sport’s [facilities – ed.] to be included in the master plan. <...> [Around – ed.] 80% of our equipment is imported, so we need to quickly shift to [producing – ed.] things ourselves. Yesterday, the tourist industry asked Russian President Vladimir Putin to scrap duties on tourist-related equipment brought in from abroad. Cable cars are one example. The President responded that if we endlessly scrap import duties, we’ll never start producing things ourselves

Sport Without Borders: New Scenarios and Formats

We have around 50,000 river routes, as many as federal roads. But we carry only 3% of the total cargo volume by rivers. <...> I believe that the usage of river routes is extremely promising both in the cargo transportation, and in the passenger transit too. Right now, tourist river trips are in high demand

Oceans and Global Transformation: What Kind of Fleet does Russia and the World Need?
We are now catching up in shipbuilding, I am talking about civil shipbuilding. <...> We thought that Germany would build something, that Czech Republic would build something, someone else would build something.
