The Ministry of Economic Development's "Feel Russia" Pavilion at the RUSSIA EXPO hosted the opening ceremony of the thematic Tourism Day.

"Today at the International RUSSIA EXPO we start the thematic days of the National Achievements Forum. It is a great honor that we start it with the theme of tourism. Just recently our President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin said that Russia has no equal in terms of natural and climatic conditions. This is indeed true: Russia has all climatic zones. And here, in the Pavilion of the Ministry of Economic Development, you can see and feel it for yourself. But we realize that it would be impossible to enjoy all the beauties if it were not for the "Tourism - Hospitality Industry" National Project, which by order of the President began its work in 2021, and we are already seeing very significant results," said Dmitry Chernyshenko, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation.

Maxim Reshetnikov, Minister of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, noted that a year ago the Government assigned the department with supervising the tourism sphere, and it turned out to be a very successful decision: "This is really a very important branch of the economy with great synergy effects, which involves a dozen other industries. This is a branch of the supply-side economy, as our President said, it is actively developing. It involves very enthusiastic people who love our country".

Chairman of the State Duma Committee on Tourism and Tourism Infrastructure Development Sangadzhi Tarbayev noted that the associations a person has with the word "tourism" in Russia have changed recently: "Now a person does not imagine Turkey and Egypt, but the names "Altai", "Karelia", "Baikal", "Far East" come up. I believe that this is the result of a great and fruitful work not only of the authorities, but also of those who are engaged in tourism today both privately and in the public sense. And they are doing everything to develop tourism within the Russian Federation. We have finally paid attention to our country, to our regions, to our neighbors. Everyone began to feel their identity and to be even more proud of the place where they were born and grew up".

Two weeks ago, the prospects for the development of sports tourism were discussed at the exposition, said Oleg Kozhemyako, Governor of the Primorye region, Chairman of the Commission of the State Council of the Russian Federation for Tourism, Physical Culture and Sports.

"This is a very interesting direction. But tourism is a very diverse layer of all kinds of recreation and travel: it is beach tourism, cruise tourism, excursion tourism, mountain tourism, medical and health tourism, and even pilgrimage tourism. There is a tourist's choice for every taste. And, of course, the development of tourism now has received a powerful impetus - it certainly requires synchronization of actions of business and government at all levels. Undoubtedly, domestic tourism in Russia has a huge potential," summarized Oleg Kozhemyako.
