Russia’s President Signed a Law to Develop Tourism

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev signed a law to develop tourism in the country’s regions, reports the Kremlin press office.

The document deals with changes to statute 26 of the federal law, ``About general principles on the organization of legal and executive state organs of the regions of the Russian Federation.’’ In part, this law is completed by a new section that gives Russia’s regions the right to use their own budgets to finance projects that will create favorable conditions for tourism development. Previously, with the exception of special programmes, only federal structures had this authority. The new law was accepted by the State Duma on 1 November, and ratified by the Federation Council on 10 November.

Anatoly Erkulov, ExpoForum JSC general director, emphasized that these measures will give the regions more latitude to develop tourism, and that this will allow St. Petersburg to realize many initiatives in this sector because the city has traditionally been in the forefront of the Russian tourism industry.
