VEB.RF, InfraVEB and Gleden Invest have signed a memorandum of cooperation to assess, prepare and carry out tourism-related investment projects.

The document was signed by Nikolay Tsekhomsky, First Deputy Chairman and member of the Board, VEB.RF; Alexander Klyachin, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Gleden Invest; and Denis Nozdrachev, CEO, InfraVEB.

The parties are considering projects to create ski resorts, a chain of hotels, a seaside resort, a resort within the Golden Ring of Russia, and a leisure and hotel complex in the Urals Federal District. For example, the projects include the expansion of the Sheregesh Ski Resort recreational area (investments of up to 10 billion roubles) and the construction of hotels in Tobolsk, Blagoveshchensk and the Elbrus region. The total project value is estimated at dozens of billions of roubles.

“Promoting tourism as a sector of the urban economy is high on VEB.RF’s list of priorities. We today agreed on the distribution of tasks among the parties. I’m confident our cooperation will be mutually beneficial and will allow us to begin to provide financing as soon as possible for specific significant investment projects related to tourism, aiming to implement the presidential decree on the national development goals of the Russian Federation for the period until 2030,” Nikolay Tsekhomsky said.

“Gleden Invest is the largest Russian player in the hotel services market, and we are interested in promoting and implementing new tourism projects in Russia. By participating in projects with such partners as VEB.RF and InfraVEB, we can provide the market with new modern technologies and quality standards and, at the same time, increase our hospitality business,” Alexander Klyachin said.

“Tourism projects need public and private investment, including through public-private partnerships. InfraVEB will help to increase the number of well-prepared investment projects, and we are ready to provide the project initiators with advisory and financial services necessary for project financing,” Denis Nozdrachev said.

VEB.RF and Russian Railways have entered into a loan agreement for 8.9 billion roubles to support the investment programme for Russian Railways digitalisation through the introduction of Russian IT solutions. The low-interest loan is given under the programme of the Russian Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media to support corporate digital transformation based on Russian solutions.

The low-interest lending mechanism is provided by the Ministry of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation under the Digital Technologies federal project as part of the Digital Economy of the Russian Federation national programme.

VEB.RF Chairman Igor Shuvalov said: “The Digital Development Ministry and VEB.RF are active in working on projects to achieve the national development goals set by the Russian President. VEB.RF is to provide financing to support the large-scale digital transformation of Russian Railways, which will help the company to go digital faster to improve its passenger and freight traffic management, enhance traffic safety, ensure cost transparency and increase its customer focus and workforce productivity.”

“Digitalisation is one of the main tools to transform Russian Railways into a modern and innovative company. By going digital, we are trying to find how to make our work more efficient and, at the same time, getting closer to our customers—passengers and shippers. VEB.RF traditionally supports us by providing financing for infrastructural projects, and I’m sincerely pleased that they’ve also become our digital partner,” said Oleg Belozerov, CEO and Chairman of the Executive Board, Russian Railways.

“The low-interest lending programme implemented by the Digital Development Ministry in partnership with Russian major banks aims to support the introduction of domestic digital solutions into companies. The borrower ultimately pays interest of 1 to 5%, and the company can get funding of up to 10 billion roubles. The total credit portfolio is now about 35 billion roubles, while the agreement between Russian Railways and VEB.RF is one of the largest,” said Maxim Parshin, Deputy Minister of Digital Development, Communications and Mass Media of the Russian Federation.

The loan is given by VEB.RF for Russian Railways digital transformation projects aimed at:

  • introducing modern management technologies for transport, infrastructure, personnel and electronic documentation,
  • creating a new generation of workstations based on domestically made processors,
  • introducing import-independent software using digital twins, the Internet of Things, big data, distributed ledgers (including blockchains), simulation modelling and machine learning.

The above-mentioned technologies will make it possible to obtain reliable real-time information about the status of transport processes, production facilities and repair operations, automate routine operations and ensure effective managerial decision-making at a qualitatively new level.
