#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Ministry for the Development of the Far East and the Arctic has submitted to the government a project on state support for the traditional economic activities of the indigenous peoples of the North, which also involves the development and support of the tourism industry.
An agreement has already been concluded with six investors who are now receiving the status of the Arctic zone resident. They will implement projects in the field of tourism and invest more than 13 billion rubles in this area.
The largest among the already announced projects is the port of Liinakhamari in the Murmansk region, which is a subsidiary of Norilsk Nickel. This is a big project that provides for the construction of a ski complex, four hotels, a glamping site, and an aquatic center. It is reported to be operational by 2027.
Among other projects, there is also a small hotel complex in the city of Kem (Karelia) – the residence of the Swedish ambassador, as well as a restaurant in a ski complex in Kirovsk (Murmansk region). In addition, two hotels will be built in the Segezha region of Karelia, and a yacht club will appear in Murmansk.
In addition to these projects, 36 ones more in the field of tourism development are getting developed: tourist centers, hotels, campings. Taken together, this is 18 percent of the entire portfolio of new investment projects, which was formed after the adoption of the law on business support in the Arctic.
