Welcoming words of the Governor of the Arkhangelsk Region

Dear friends!

I am glad to welcome the participants of the 3rd International Tourist Forum in Arkhangelsk.


Tourism is one of the greatest priorities for socioeconomic development of a region in modern conditions. We face the challenges of promoting new compelling tourist programs, creating conditions for developing of the tourism infrastructure and creation a comfortable tourist environment.

Participants of the Forum will discuss these and other current issues in the sphere of tourism: statistical monitoring and legal regulation, territory branding, visions for developing of the industrial, event and Arctic tourism.

It is gratifying to say that the Forum has become a traditional venue for tourism professionals from Russia and abroad for connecting with each other. Representatives of federal and local authorities, educational and non-government organizations are invited to the Forum. Arkhangelsk is waiting for the guests. We invite you into the heart of the Arctic, where youll have a chance to learn the culture of the Russian North and feel the friendly atmosphere of the Pomor Land.

I wish all the participants had an efficient work searching for practical approaches to common projects and ideas.

Governor of the Arkhangelsk Region
Igor Orlov
