The opening of a new facility of a foreign operator promises the creation of more than 1,000 jobs at the first stage of the project. These are new jobs in the sphere of hotel business and tourism with a high “white” salary in the future.

As the Vice-Governor of the Primorye Andrei Larin stressed, Naga Corporation becomes an important partner of the region in the development of the tourist industry of the region.
“The management of the operator company not only participates in the implementation of the project of creating a hotel and entertainment complex with an aquapark, but also actively takes initiatives to develop the logistics capabilities of the region, initiating new transport projects such as the construction of the Mudanjiang-Vladivostok high-speed railway, the opening of new lines of direct air communication with our main partner countries. It is important for us that the company highly assesses the potential of the region and is ready to make significant efforts in its development,” - the deputy head of the region said.

Upon completion of the first phase of construction, these tourist facilities will represent hotel and entertainment complexes with casinos, restaurants, bars, as well as trade pavilions, recreation and walking areas. According to the calculations of the corporation, after the opening of the two complexes, the gambling resort will be able to host more than 1.2 million tourists - this is an approximate annual capacity of new hotels, thanks to the creation of which the number of rooms will exceed 700 rooms. More than 4,000 people will be employed at new facilities.
