The message reads, in part:
“You are rightly proud of your native land, the remarkable pages in its history, the hard work and achievements of your fellow countrymen.
It is gratifying to see that the region is developing a diversified industrial and agricultural complex, modern transport, and social infrastructure. It is important that these developments do not hinder the conservation of Altai’s unique wildlife and the biodiversity of its ecosystem. This territory is famous for its nature reserves and archaeological sites, and its fascinating itineraries for mountaineering, skiing, water sports, hunting and fishing enthusiasts. This is what makes the region one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the country.”
