Dear Colleagues!

The level of tourism branch is not only an indication of social-economic success of the country but also a sufficient mechanism for realization of national interests. For its development an effective operation of all transport system branches of the country is needed, including sea and river transport. Our country in this sphere has a great potential and development opportunities, but unfortunately they are little used at the present moment.

In this connection creation in Russia of highly developed passenger carriage system, tourism-recreation areas of modern world standards is the main direction for tourism industry development. Its formation demands active participation and efficient cooperation of authorities and business.
