Russian Hotel Business Elite Summons in the Baikal Region

News Russian business elite has gathered in the North Baikal region to discuss the prospect of building more than 30 medium and small hospitality objects in line with the Organic Escape project. The size of investment will total about 11 billion rubles. The project received official support from the government of the Republic of Buryatia.

The project in Russia is aimed at the creation of one of the biggest attraction points for tourists in the Baikal region. The inflow of tourists is supposed to achieve 148,000 arrivals per year by 2018, with an emphasis on tourists from abroad. The first hotel is set to be launched in 2012.

Every building will live up to international ecology requirements with the reliance on the international green technology standard. The program involves a massive reconstruction of the entire engineer and utility network and internal road system. Severobaikalsk and Ulan-Ude are the cities that are hosting professional hospitality service staff training programs.

'The enormity of the project does not only ensure new vacancies. We also expect it to prompt our young people to stay here and work forever. This is a powerful impetus for our municipal unit. If we have good hotels in our city, we shall be seeing lots of tourists here', says Sergey Rybalchenco, the mayor of Severobaikalsk.

According to expert estimates, by 2018, North Baikal hospitality network may involve 8,000 to 9,000 local residents.
