It is necessary to use the advances of the digital economy and the possibilities of geolocation. <...> Based on that, we could also count the money flow of tourism industry.

Tourism Cash Flows: Exporting Tourism
Tourism is a branch of economy. It is an industry of hospitality, which cannot develop on its own; we can create comfortable conditions for visiting only in symbiosis with all 53 industries. <...> To sum up the Development of Domestic and Incoming Tourism for 2011-2018 Federal Targeted Programme, I should say that during this time the infrastructure saw the following investments: more than 27 billion roubles of federal budget funds, more than 8 billion of regional funds and over 80 billion of extra-budgetary funds. More than 250,000 jobs were created. <...> We are preparing a new Federal Targeted Program for 2019-2025: we already have applications from 51 regions worth more than 80 billion roubles for financing from the federal budget, about 17 billion roubles from regional budget and more than 400 billion of extra-budgetary funds
