As it prepares to welcome business partners, visitors, and vacationers, the Moscow City Tourism Committee is advertising the city not just as a cultural capital but also as an economic powerhouse. In order to promote the city’s tourism potential, Moscow has organised business trips and hosted familiarisation tours for delegations from allied nations.

Moscow is enhancing its infrastructure to better serve tourists. While signs are now available in Chinese and English, all public transit announcements are now repeated in English. Hotels are also making adjustments to better serve travellers from other nations and ensure a comfortable stay.

According to Bulat Nurmukhanov, head of the international cooperation division of the Moscow City Tourism Committee, they are still working towards restoring the flow of Indian tourists to Moscow as it used to be before the pandemic.
