“While a single (TOP) no on Sakhalin, but I think the gap we fill quickly. The island came a new active Governor, Oleg Kozhemyako, has already made proposals that will try to implement in the near future. One project concerns the establishment of the ski resort on Sakhalin, the second is the development of the Kuril Islands, the third is ensuring its own food. To transport from the mainland is expensive and far away,” said Trutnev.
He added that it is also planned to open TOR travel with an emphasis on Kamchatka. “The region’s unique, natural beauty of such places are rare on Earth. Unfortunately, the potential is still insignificant. From the point of view of service to tourists has almost nothing to offer” – added Trutnev.
He recalled that in Primorye there are two areas of advanced development, two more TOR created in the Khabarovsk territory and the Amur region.
TOR “Kamchatka” will be created at eight sites located in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky and the Elizovsky district. The project involves the development of two major subjects: the port-industrial and tourism and recreation. Already received 18 applications from potential residents, among them for the construction of several hotel complexes, recreational center, sports and Wellness centers, Spa resort, and also a helicopter runway in the Elizovsky district.
