Chinese businessmen are willing to invest in Crimea and organize tourist trips to the peninsula, according to the newspaper “Rossiyskaya Gazeta”.
Chinese entrepreneurs are, first of all, interested in Crimea’s tourism potential. According to Yezhov, Chinese companies have already proposed to send tourist groups to Crimea for educational purposes. There are also further plans to develop medical tourism, in particular, the use of healing waters.
Representatives of fifteen Chinese tour operators have already visited Crimea in the spring of 2015. Russia and China have also signed an agreement on cooperation providing Chinese citizens with visa-free tourist travel to the peninsula.
