One-stop principle is crucial for yachting development in Russia - Igor Levitin
One-stop principle is a crucial challenge for the development of yachting in Russia, Igor Levitin, Aide to the President of the Russian Federation, told IAA PortNews correspondent after the meeting of RF Government’s Marine Board where Igor Levitin heads an ad hoc working group.
The first meeting of the working group established to the order of RF President has already been held.
“Yachting is under responsibility of about 30 agencies and public organizations. Our prime task is to create a ‘one-stop shop' so that yachtsman knew where to go”, said the Aide to RF President.
Besides, Igor Levitin told about the development of a new ‘roadmap’.
“According to the decision of the Marine Board, a ‘roadmap’, is needed for the development of yachting till 2024. Tourism Development Strategy has already been adopted and we should develop the section of yachting”, Igor Levitin told IAA PortNews. The roadmap can be drafted in 2020.
According to the speaker, the main part of the plan for yachting development will cover inland water ways of the Russian Federation. The issue of access to RF IWW for foreign yachts and tourists can be reviewed, he believes.
