HOW TOURISM CREATES JOBS IN RURAL AREAS

  1. Sporting event sites become the winning tourist destination
    The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia highlighted a remarkable increase in tourists spectating the championship across 11 cities. Retrieved from Russian news agency Tass.com, foreign tourists amounted to 2.9 million that month. In its World Cup host cities, the rate almost doubled; whereas the number of tourists in less-populated cities like Saransk grew by 235%, Kaliningrad and Yekaterinburg grew by tenfold, and the greatest record was in Volgograd, at 15 times the normal rate.
  2. Viral sports attract tourists to visit sports facilities
    Besides FIFA, China also sees beneficial outcomes from the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and its contribution to revitalizing the winter sports industry in rural districts. It has boosted revenues of local ski resorts nationwide, as citizens become empowered to venture into the trending sport. According to a ski resort owner in Huancheng, Jilin Province, visitors coming there have indeed risen threefold. Employees also increased from 20 to 35 people, and their salaries even rose by almost 17%. That being said, the Games have raised the local employment rate and heightened their living standards.
