Ukrainians adopt tourist experience in Turkey2019-02-01 | views: 210
Kherson region, especially its reserves and national parks, should turn into a tourist region attractive to foreigners.
This goal was set by the regional authorities, who flew to the largest tourism exhibition EMITT 2019 in Turkey for the effective implementation and search for partners, Deputy Chairman of the Kherson Regional State Administration Andrei Balon said in a comment to Ukrinform.
“Our main goal is to adopt the best practices, experience and try to realize it on our own, taking into account our specifics and capabilities in the region. In order to interest not only Ukrainian, but also foreign tourists. We focus on national parks and reserves, which we will especially develop and create an attractive infrastructure for tourists, ”said Balonge.
According to him, over the past year, strategic sectors of the economy have been identified in the region.
“We realized that the tourism industry will be one of the main budget-forming sectors. As a result, at the end of last year we adopted a program for the development of tourism in the region and determined that we need to look for reliable partners for the implementation of this program, ”the official explained.
He noted that there is already a growing interest in green tourism, as well as activity in the direction of tourism of the united territorial communities, which have begun to use their opportunities.
“We decided that this tourist product can be interesting not only for the Ukrainian tourist, but also for the foreign one. We also found a partner - the company Turkish Airlines, ”said Balon.
He also recalled that Kherson region is quite stereotypically considered a resort region during the warm period, although this is not the case, since there are four national parks and two reserves in Kherson region (out of four that exist in Ukraine).
