The forum of interregional cooperation of Kazakhstan and Russia was opened on the 8th of November in Petropavlovsk of the Republic of Kazakhstan. More than 2000 representatives of state bodies, tourist industry and business of the two countries gathered at the jubilee forum of interregional cooperation. “New approaches and trends in development of tourism in Kazakhstan and Russia” is the main theme.
The delegation of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug includes representatives of the department of youth policy and tourism of Yamal, the department of international and external economic relations of Yamal, employees of the state budgetary establishment “Yamal-Tour” and the tourist information centre, representatives of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug in Kurgan Oblast, performers of the regional center for national cultures.
The head of the Federal Agency for Tourism of Russia Oleg Safonov thanked the Kazakh people for cordial welcoming. According to him, special attention in development of economic and friendly relations between the countries is paid to tourism.
The stand of Yamal at the exhibition of tourist potential of regions of Russia and Kazakhstan became one of the absolute favorites of the event. About 20 television companies of the federal and regional levels gathered detailed photo and video materials about offers in tourist sector of the arctic region.
Oleg Safonov notes that Yamal has a very beautiful and large-scale stand. The arctic region is represented with a very beautiful exposition.
The deputy director of the department of youth policy and tourism of Yamal Nayil Khairullin said that within the first hours of the exhibition there was excitement near the exposition stand of Yamal. It is symbolic that in front of the northern ethnic dwelling — a choum there is an improvised Kazakh yurt. In fact, these are two objects representing ethnics: from the Russian side — a choum, from the Kazakh side — a yurt.
“For Yamal participation in this forum is important not only from the point of view of the presentation of the region’s tourist potential abroad, but it is also a good opportunity to conduct meetings with our Kazakh partners and to define a new vector of international humanitarian cooperation”, as the first deputy director of the department of international and external economic relations of Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug Sergey Uramayev said.
President of Russia Vladimir Putin and President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev will visit the forum on the 9th of November.
