During two days of the strategic session the participants proposed more than 150 interesting ideas. Some of the presented projects will be included in the strategy of economic development of the region till 2035.
“We shall choose the most priority ones, which will lead to the considerable amount of not only tourist flow, but also investments that can be attracted in Yamal-Nenets Autonomous Okrug owing to the tourist sector”, he said.
According to the director of the Association of tour operators of Russia Maya Lomidze, new meanings and opportunities for attracting tourists to Yamal appeared as a result of the strategic session on elaboration of the regional project on development of tourism. They include such tours as “Yamal is the birthplace of mammoths” and “In search of the disappeared Sikhirtya people”, as well as development of business tourism not only for Russian but also for foreign corporations.
In the opinion of the adviser to the head of Information-analytical center of the State Commission on Arctic Development Grigory Dobromelov, Yamal is a driver of investments in the Arctic.
