The signing of the agreement on cooperation in tourism between Azerbaijan and Russia will give an impetus to further rapprochement between the two countries in this area, Chairman of the Azerbaijan Tourism Association (AzTA) Nahid Bagirov told Trend Sept. 3.
The chairman of AzTA noted that Russia is an interesting market for Azerbaijan in terms of tourism.
"Russia has always been an attractive tourism market for Azerbaijan," Bagirov said.
He noted that for further development of tourism relations between Azerbaijan and Russia, it is necessary to increase the advertising of Azerbaijan as a tourism destination not only in Moscow, but also in the regions of Russia.
"Russia is a big country with a significant number of population. Therefore, it is necessary to actively promote the tourism potential of Azerbaijan in Russia, in particular in its regions. It is also necessary to develop direct airline service between the regions of Russia and Azerbaijan. But before that, it is necessary to conduct good advertising, study the market and analyze the interest," Bagirov said.
A ceremony of signing documents with participation of President of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev and President of Russia Vladimir Putin took place Sept. 1 in Sochi.
In particular, Agreement between the Government of the Republic of Azerbaijan and the Government of the Russian Federation on Cooperation in Tourism was signed.
