Ethnic tourism to generate income for indigenous people

Ethnic tourism to generate income for indigenous people

Experts believe that tourism can spur the development of other areas of the community economy.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The members of the Arctic Development Project Office (PORA) expert council exchanged experience in the implementation of tourist projects in the Arctic regions and their views on the industry development problems. The Arctic Development Project Office is the operator of the Taimyr village of Ust-Avam visit center construction.

According to the general director of PORA Alexander Stotsky, the center should create 12 jobs for economic support of the Taimyr indigenous minorities representatives.

“There is great potential in ethno-tourism in the Arctic zone. It allows the indigenous peoples of the North to maintain their traditional occupations while developing infrastructure. Tourism can spur the development of other spheres of the community economy: the production of products and goods of folk art crafts. If other countries have done this, why can’t we? The two main problems are transport infrastructure and the lack of normal communications, especially in the Eastern Arctic”, said Alexander Vorotnikov, coordinator of the PORA expert council, who moderated the event.

The members of the expert council also proposed to exempt tourist projects from taxes, to combine ethno-tourism with ecotourism, as well as to build centers of ethnic culture.

Earlier, the tourism potential of Taimyr was presented to foreigners. The development of settlements in the northern territory of the region is supported by the Nornickel grant competition The World of Taimyr.
