October 9 at the office of the Federal Agency for tourism in Moscow, a meeting was held between the Head of the Russian tourism Department Doguzova Zarina and the President of the International Women’s Union Amirova Alfiya
Alfiya Amirova told about the flagship International project of the organization – the festival of Handicrafts and crafts “By Hands of a woman”. One of the main goals of The festival is to tell about the tourist routes of the regions of the Russian Federation and show the uniqueness and potential of souvenir products of the regions using the funds of the national economy.
The souvenir industry is of social significance for the region, as the production and sale of Souvenirs provide employment for local craftswomen. Due to the increased demand for original Souvenirs that convey the national flavor, traditional folk arts and crafts are being revived; thus, the culture of the region is also being positively influenced.
