Title :  The Concession Model in the Tourist and Recreational Sphere in the Regions with Lack of the Self-Development Capacity.


At most Russian regions very necessary are need to solve the contradiction between reach tourist and recreation potential (a lot of picturesque, memorable places of architecture, landscape, attractions, monuments of culture, archeology, etc.) and possibilities to satisfice demand from tourist flow (internal and international tourist flow). This aspect are restrain sustainable regions socio-economic development in the long term in view of the definition of tourism and recreation in their strategies as one of the more perspective way.

The main restrictions in the use of tourist and recreational resources are: low quality of tourist services, insufficient development of tourist and supporting infrastructure (hotels, catering facilities, etc.), high level of wear and tear, which requires significant investment in the restoration of historical sites and their improvement. And the most promising tool in smoothing this contradiction is the use of public-private partnership, namely a specific model of concession in the development of tourism and recreational areas of the regions.

The purpose of this article is identifying the prerequisites and limitations of the self-development potential formation of tourist and recreational areas in the Russia center regions (on the materials of Vladimir, Ivanovo, Kostroma and Yaroslavl regions), and the development of a model of concession in the tourism and recreational sector in relation to the specifics of the conditions of regions with insufficient potential for self-development.

The study used the following methods and tools: system approach, as well as the use of General methods (methods of comparison and analogy, analysis and synthesis) and General scientific (normative and positive, etc.) research methods, as well as methods of modeling of socio-economic processes.

The result of the research is a model of concession in the development of tourism in the Russia center regions. At the same time, it is proved that in regions with insufficient potential for self-development, the most acceptable will be those concession models that involve significant guarantees from the public authorities. In view of the limited budget resources of the Russia center regions, the most relevant source may be the resources of state financial development institutions or various funds accumulating funds on both market (rental) and non-market basis (instruments of state stimulation).
