A member of the Russian Public Chamber, the chairman of the Commission on regional development Vyacheslaw Glazychev offered to attract the leading managers to development of tourism in Bashkiria.
“Your Republic has promising plans for working in this direction” – he said on Thursday after the meeting with the President of Bashkiria Rustem Khamitov – “But in order to make this program really successful, you have to revise the strategy of its realization. Unfortunately till recently Bashkiria lived separately, as an island, paying little attention to what was happening in the neighboring regions as well as in the country in a whole. Such policy wasn’t efficient. For example, in order to start developing same tourism one has to take the situation nearby into account and to begin hiring the best tour operators of the country, otherwise you can invest too much in construction of the tourist centers, but if the operators fail to attract clients, all these costs can be in vain”.
