Abstract

At present humanitarian cooperation and integration processes are confronting with new risks and challenges, and a search for real ways to overcome them is an important objective dictated by the current moment. International tourism ensures social and cultural development, increases solidity and stability of international and inter-cultural communications, promotes mutual understanding and often catalyzes business relations between countries. The international tourism development within the CIS member states can be supported by a host of factors, such as absence of visa regimes between several CIS member states, absence of a language barrier, and friendly or even familial ties between citizens of our respective countries. Meanwhile, development of tourism in CIS member states faces a host of common negative trends and, first of all, insufficient development of domestic tourism, which to a large extent is determined by low level of investments in the tourist industry, and, as a result, by low level of development of the tourist infrastructure and weak promotion of national tourist products. In current global competitive environment where competition expands and intensifies, it is essential for any CIS member states to build its tourist infrastructure.
