Ukraine needs to develop ecological tourism.
The state environmental services and local authorities should support and promote not only the preservation of forests, national parks, but also the development of ecological tourism, as stated by President Petro Poroshenko.
The President noted that he was ready to support a special program, if necessary, for the development of the abovementioned sector. “If we need a national program of ecotourism, I am waiting for the proposals. We can resolve this issue quickly at both governmental and legislative levels,” he said.
According to Petro Poroshenko, it is expedient for Ukraine to study foreign experience of the organization of national parks that generate a large-scale tourist flow and have a positive influence on the development of adjacent territories and the filling of local budgets.
The Head of State also emphasized that the development of natural reserves is one of the priorities of the state policy in the field of environmental protection.
