Rosturizm will open ten representative offices in nine countries in 2015
Rosturizm is planning to open ten representative offices in nine countries around the world generating main tourist flow in Russia – reports the agency MIA “Russia Today”.
At the moment, it is know that the two of them will be located in China. According to the head of the Federal Agency for Tourism Oleg Safronov, the realization of these plans was estimated at 111 million rubles in the summer of 2014. However, according to the official, the amount will be revised due to the decline in ruble.
“We plan to carry out works based on a public-private partnership”, said the head of the Federal Tourism Agency. In the financing of this project may be particularly engaged regional budgets interested in attracting foreign tourists and private businesses. This will allow reducing the final federal costs of the organization of representatives.
In addition, Rosturizm announced the launch of the competition for the best idea for the creation of national tourist brand of the country: in particular, for the common logo and slogan which will clearly present the tourist opportunities of Russia in the foreign market.
The brand should reflect national and cultural peculiarities of the country, its scale, natural and climatic conditions, the friendliness and generosity of Russian people. The head of the Federal Tourism Agency stressed that the holding of this contest will not require spending a penny of budget money as a reward the winner will receive public recognition and not money. In this case all copyrights to the brand will belong to the state.
