On the first days of the China International Import Expo in Shanghai the delegation from Yamal has already managed to negotiate with potential foreign partners. The region is participating in the event as part of the Russian exposition. The pavilion of our country occupies 2000 square meters. There are products of almost a hundred domestic companies divided into five sectors: agriculture, medicine, high technology, services and consumer goods. There are two companies with residence in Yamal “Yasavey” and “Nyda-Resource”. This information was given in the press service of the governor of Yamal.
Regions of the country presented their tourist potential at the thematic session. Sverdlovsk Oblast develops a new direction – medical tourism, Ryazan invites to historical and ecological tours. The arctic region is ready to acquaint foreign guests with ethnic groups. The company “Yasavey” sat at the negotiation table several times. One of business meetings was held with representatives of Bali Island. The conversation was about the opportunity to open the representational office of a travel firm of Yamal in Indonesia. With the hosts of the fair, a company from Beijing, the representatives of Yamal discussed creation of new tour packages that meet mentality of Asian countries.
“Asia has interest in Yamal, but requests are somewhat different than in Europe. It is necessary to make such unique commercial offer that Chinese people would be interested to visit us. For example, they need another service. The restaurants should have a menu in Chinese. The same applies to information folders in hotels. Also we are ready to discuss creation of compound tour packages depending on what they would like – to travel together with reindeer herders, to fish or maybe to look at a reindeer slaughter”, the head of the Yamal firm Olga Vasilyeva said.
Chinese tour operators marked the most popular places in Russia among local tourists. These are: Saint Petersburg, Moscow and Irkutsk region. The average age of travelers from China is 40-65 years old. At the next stage of work it is planned to develop new regions and directions of tourism. Trips for the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are gaining popularity. Canada, Finland and Murmansk region offer such tours for large groups now. Yamal became a discovery, and it is interesting as a region to send small groups of tourists. First of all, original ethnography, reindeer husbandry, Northern Lights, holidays of indigenous peoples of the North arouse interest.
