1 Russian Federation Tourism in the economy In 2014 Russia recorded 32.4 million international arrivals. This is 5% more international visitors than in The total number of people visiting Russia for leisure related tourism purposes decreased by 3%, but visits for business purposes increased by 8%. At the same time, there was a significant decrease in outbound tourism from Russia in 2014, falling by 15.1% on the previous year. Tourism directly employed people working in hotel, travel agency and reservation services in The total contribution of travel and tourism to GDP in 2014 was estimated to be RUB billion, approximately 6% of total GDP. The sector is estimated to directly and indirectly support 3.9 million jobs (5.6% of total employment), with tourism exports estimated to be worth RUB billion (3.5% of total exports) and investment to be RUB 369 billion (2.7% of total investment) (WTTC). Russia s Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat) and Federal Agency for Tourism (Rustourism) are working towards the production of a Tourism Satellite Account for Russia. The activities classified as tourism were approved by the Ministry of Culture in 2014 and will be used in pilot calculations on the contribution of tourism to the economy. Tourism governance and funding Responsibility for tourism rests with the Ministry of Culture, which covers laws and regulations and general policy. Operational activity is the responsibility of the Federal Agency for Tourism (Rustourism), which is an agency of the Ministry. Rustourism performs a range of functions including global and domestic marketing, education and training, data analysis, business support and various management and supervisory activities. A regional approach to tourism is crucial in the Russian Federation due to its vast size and the abundant natural, social and economic disparities within its territory. Most regional administrations have local ministries, agencies, committees and departments with responsibilities for tourism affairs. The federal governing bodies the Ministry and the Federal Agency for Tourism co-ordinate and co-operate with the regional tourism authorities in the planning, administration and promotion of tourism. In 2014, the budget of the Federal Agency for Tourism allocated RUB million to the implementation of the Federal Target Programme Development of Domestic Tourism in the Russian Federation Tourism policies and programmes The main challenge facing tourism in Russia is to improve the quality and competitiveness of the tourism product in domestic and global markets. 375
