Main Description

Sustainable development of regional tourism in the conditions of transition economy

 

 

Policy makers often see tourism as a tool for the achievement of sustainable regional development. It could become a vehicle for the attainment of economic growth by some of the Russian regions, one of which is Saratov oblast'. Occupying a vast territory along the Volga River in the South-West of Russia, it possesses a substantial tourism potential, but lacks the essential economic development and infrastructure.
 
This paper provides a discussion of some of the main socio-economic and other issues of sustainable development of tourism industry in the region. It examines the existing official documents regarding the development and promotion of the regional tourist product, such as "The Concept of the Development of Tourism in Saratov Oblast', 2001-2005" and "The Programme of the Development of Tourism in Saratov Oblast', 2002-2005", worked out under the supervision of the local Ministry of Youth Policies, Sports and Tourism. The paper also looks at the data collected in a survey of the leading travel agencies and tour operators in Saratov. The findings are interpreted in the light of the proposition about the importance of the creation of the educational basis for training of qualified specialists in the field of tourism.
