Three Bashkiria projects received grants for rural tourism development

Three projects from Bashkiria received grants for the rural tourism development, the Prime Minister of the Government of the Republic Andrey Nazarov said.

Recall that from 2022, representatives of the country's small agricultural business can count on state support to implement their projects for the rural tourism development, Bashinform News Agency previously reported. The amount of the grant is up to 10 million rubles.

"Starting this year, representatives of small agricultural businesses and those who will unite in cooperatives will be able to receive grants for the development of rural tourism. This is a federal program. This direction is now becoming more and more popular in many countries worldwide. We also need to develop it," the Prime Minister said. As he noted, to date, the Ministry of Agriculture of Russia has approved three projects of agrarians from Bashkiria.

So, in the Abzelilovsky district, agrarians organize horse riding, kumis therapy, and hippotherapy for tourists. It is planned to conduct excursions to the wild-hive apiaries, a demonstration of crafts, horseback riding and hiking, and an eco-shop in the Kugarchinsky district. The third project is at a fishing farm near Tuymazy, where vacationers can go fishing, ride kayaks, horses, or bicycles.

Four more projects are under consideration, the Prime Minister added.

Also, Andrey Nazarov announced the program's resumption for developing agricultural cooperatives, launched in the region four years ago.

"Earlier, grants were given to create purely production cooperatives: grain, meat, milk, and so on. Now we will finance manufacturers who will be engaged in at least the primary processing of their products. In addition, we have increased the grant amount from 3 to 14 million rubles and added the opportunity for farmers to compensate for up to 40% of equipment costs".
