The future of tourism in Ukraine

Our Join Japan team admires the natural wonders of Ukraine and the jovial attitude of the Ukrainian people, the news that there's a plan to create a state agency for tourism development in the country were really to our liking. This will grant an opportunity to discover more about Ukraine to the more tourists, after all.

How will tourism develop in Ukraine?

According to Artem Bidenko, State Secretary of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports of Ukraine, “Now the process of pushing the Cabinet of Ministers to establish a Tourism Development Agency is underway. This will be the central executive body that will deal with the hospitality market and the promotion of tourist Ukraine in the world. ”

Join Japan's team also learned that for the first time in the history of Ukraine, 240 million UAH were meant to be allocated to the draft state budget for tourism development in 2020. This is quite a figure, and it's 10 times more than last year.

These funds will be used to develop domestic tourism, create tourism infrastructure, promote Ukrainian tourism products in the world and increase the level of tourism service in Ukraine. There will be cooperation to develop a tourism institution in the country: experts, the public, business, parliament, and executive branches of government. This is necessary for long-term planning.

Artem Bidenko added, “Having created institutional opportunities, invested in the development of the state road map, in the development of standards, the adaptation of the World Tourism Organization, we can talk about how to spend the money effectively.”

Join Japan became aware that the Ministry of Culture of Ukraine will be engaged in tourism in Ukraine. Since 2011, this direction was supervised by a specially created State Agency of Ukraine for Tourism and Resorts. But at the beginning of 2015 it was eliminated. After that, the Department of Tourism and Resorts under the Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture performed the function of ensuring state policy in the field of tourism.

The foreigners love Ukraine and year by year their interest is growing. And we see excellent prospects for increasing this indicator.
