Putin considers increasing tourist cashback for Russia’s Far East

VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin suggested thinking about increasing the tourist cashback for traveling to the regions of the Far East. "Tourist cashback — I would also think about increasing it," he said. "For the Far East, we are looking for additional resources to support business, and the tourism business is a promising area, without a doubt," he said on Friday at a meeting with moderators and speakers of key sessions of the Eastern Economic Forum, commenting on the relevant proposal. Putin noted that the implementation of such a proposal would require additional resources, so the reaction of Finance Minister Anton Siluanov is "already understandable." The sixth Eastern Economic Forum is being held in Vladivostok on September 2-4 in a hybrid (combined online and in-person) format, the main topic of the business program is "New Opportunities for the Far East in a Changing World." Other programs that are part of the forum include Youth EEF, EEF Junior, and Far East Street. The forum is organized by the Roscongress Foundation. TASS is the general media partner and the official host photo agency of the event. Read more
