On September 8, at a meeting of the Government, a number of amendments were made to the regulations on the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy, the State Agency for Tourism Development (SATD) and the Ministry of Infrastructure.
Among the main changes are:
▪ ensuring the formation and implementation of state policy in the field of tourism and resorts returns to the list of main objectives of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine.
▪ the State Agency for Tourism Development of Ukraine is transferred under the responsibility of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine.
"The Ministry of Infrastructure is returning the issue of tourism and resorts development in Ukraine to its scope of responsibility. Today's decision is not spontaneous. There is a huge amount of work already done by the SATD team in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy: these are Explore Ukraine project, active promotion of the national brand at the national and international levels, as well as for the first time in many years, tourism in Ukraine has received real funding and a vision of development. I should remind here that our team has long been working systematically with the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy. Roads to tourist magnets, new navigation, development of water tourist routes are a clear evidence of that activity.
However, from now on we open wider opportunities for another area included in the Great Construction project. This is the creation of a new infrastructure for existing and future resorts, working with Ukrainian and international investors, attracting new tourists to our country. We are grateful to our colleagues for the work done - we have many more joint projects ahead," commented the Minister of Infrastructure of Ukraine Oleksandr Kubrakov.
