Saudi Arabia to boost investment in Russian tourism projects
Russia and Saudi Arabia plan to boost mutual investments in tourism projects, Chief Executive Officer of Russian Direct Investment Fund (RDIF) Kirill Dmitriev said.
"Investments from the Saudi side in Russia are going to be increased, including Russian tourism projects. The Russian-Chinese-Saudi fund will also invest in Saudi Arabia’s tourism supported by the Saudi state," TASS cited him as saying.
Dmitriev noted that the Saudi side is very interested in attracting Russian travelers to the country. "An average of 6 mln tourists visit Turkey, and 3 mln visit Egypt. We want more (travelers) to come here," Dmitriev added.
