Society

UFA, 17 November 2017. /Bashinform News Agency/. Within the framework of the Hospitality and Tourism Industry Forum, which takes place in Ufa, the participants presented an information platform for tourism resources. According to its developers, representatives of the Rural and Agrarian Tourism Development Association in the Republic of Bashkortostan, the platform will be aimed at working out and promoting routes and objects of hospitality and tourism in the region.

The head of the information platform development Vyacheslav Rechister notes that currently the tourism industry in the republic is hampered by a lack of information: potential consumers of services do not find exhaustive information about tourist sites and events, level of service, accessibility of services for pensioners, children and people with disabilities and so on. The integrated platform will solve these problems and bring the quality of services provided to a single standard.

It is assumed that the system will be oriented towards the end user — a potential tourist who will be able to learn about event tourism, natural, historical and cultural sites, services and companies providing them and even to map a route independently.

"Of course, we should develop relations in the cultural field. Our artists have performed in Turkey many times. In addition, in 2020, the World Folklore Festival will take place in Ufa, in the Republic of Bashkortostan, with participation of 70-80 countries. We are waiting for creative teams from Turkey," the head of the republic said.

In turn, Hüseyin Diriöz marked that Turkey set a high value on Russian-Turkish relations.

"One of the most important aspects of our relationship with Russia is interregional cooperation. We are interested in developing relations with each of the Russian entities. Our economic relations with the Republic of Bashkortostan are developing quite actively. There is a huge potential for their expansion. I think that Turkish business should express more interest in your republic. Therefore, we would like to hold some business meetings", stressed the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Turkey to the Russian Federation.

He said that representatives of large Turkish companies were expected to visit Bashkortostan in early December.

"Today, sports and culture issues are very important — mutual cultural visits, concerts. The year of 2019 is declared a Russian- Turkish crossroads year of culture and tourism", said Hüseyin Diriöz.
