THE EURASIAN ECONOMIC UNION: OPPORTUNITIES FOR INCREASING THE RUSSIA-ARMENIA TOURIST FLOWS

P. 259-265.
Filosofova T. G., Gasparian L.

Currently the issue of increasing tourist flows between Russia and Armenia has

gained particular significance. The Republic of Armeniaand the Russian

Federation are the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) member-states, so

development of tourism between the two countries will serve better understanding

and will create conditions for further steady development and business

cooperation. Analysis of tourism role in the economy of different countries shows

that inward tourism plays an important role for national economies. It is very

important for Armenia to ensure future growth of tourist flow from Russia.

According to the National Statistics Service of the Republic of Armeniathe

majority of visiting Armenia tourists are Russian tourists. Development of

integration processes within EAEU is directly related to the increase of tourist

flows within the Union. On the one hand inward tourism contributes to the

economic growth of a country (a tourist destination, acting as the receiving party),

which increases the living standards of the population. On the other hand –

tourism development is important for EAEU as an integration group, as it ensures

socio-cultural development, sustainability and stability of international and crosscultural

communications, better understanding, it becomes a booster of business

cooperation between countries.
