Due to sanctions Russian people may choose Kazakhstani tours more frequently - hopes authorized committee of Kazakhstan
Astana. February 17. KazTAG - The citizens of Russia may choose Kazakhstani destinations more often due to the sanctions against Russia, said Timur Duisengaliyev, director of department of tourism industry of the Ministry on Investments and Development.
"Big attention will be paid on Russia. It is not a secret every cloud has a silver lining in terms of the sanctions imposed against our neighbor. We must use this situation, because our northern and especially west Siberian regions are very interested in trips around Kazakhstan. It is Pavlodar region- Shazybay, it is Schuchinsk-Borovoye zone, it is Balkhash, Alakol. We could boost development of this tourism type, especially with our Russian neighbor," he said.
In his words, Kazakhstan will focus on tourists’ attraction from South-Eastern Asia.
