June 21, 2023

The proposals are important for Norilsk and require support at the federal level.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. The Norilsk Development Agency (NDA) deputy director for tourism development Anastasia Korol took part in the session ‘Tourism in the Arctic: points of attraction, prospects, people creating tourism products’ at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).

The NDA representative put forward a number of initiatives. One of the proposals is to increase funding for cluster development centers.

“Our Arctic tourist cluster is growing, but support measures remain in the volumes laid down in 2020. In addition, I focused on the fact that when launching business support programs, it is necessary to take into account the remoteness of the Arctic zone settlements and the short construction season. We do not have the opportunity to participate in many grant programs, because it is simply impossible to disburse the funds in such a short period”, said Anastasia Korol.

The head of the direction also touched upon the topics of introducing the industrial and paleontological tourism concepts into the law and the sport fishing legalization. In addition, proposals were made to increase the subsidy for organizing children’s tours within the framework of the national project Tourism and Hospitality Industry for schoolchildren in the Arctic zone from 5 thousand to 20 thousand rubles, as well as to simplify the system for obtaining land from the forest fund for Russian Arctic residents.

“All the initiatives I have listed are important for our territory and require support at the federal level”, says Anastasia Korol.

Recall that SPIEF was held in the Northern capital from 14 to 17 June. The issues of the Far North territories sustainable development were discussed at the stand The Arctic – the dialogue territory.
