The introduction of fund raising will promote the development of the tourist infrastructure in the regions of the "Golden Ring", thinks the Russian finance minister Anton Silouanov.

"We talk a lot about creating additional sources of income for subjects, such as fund raising from the tourism. Now there is an experiment in a number of subjects. I am sure that in the regions of the "Golden Ring" it is the next step to raise funds and to have more opportunities to develop the infrastructure of the tourist business", - he said during the Economic Forum in Vladimir.

He noted that regions that have no income from oil and gas, but that have many sights, could earn at the expense of tourism. "We can make a lot of money, we can join well our finances. We have always focused on oil and gas profits, on oil price, gas price, on dollar rate, and here we do not need to create any risks. It is a stable income, a stable investment to the gross domestic product in each regions of the Russian Federation", - said the minister.

He reminded that now more and more powers are passed on the subjects in Russia. For example, the regions will have rights to the investment benefits.
As reported, the pilot project for the introduction of fund raising will be realized in Altai Krai, Krasnodar Krai, in the Crimea and in Mineralnye Vody (Stavropol Krai).
