On December 8th, members of the survey group and representatives of Moscow Tourism Department and Moscow local travel agencies held profound face-to-face communication, during which problems that the both parties are concerned were discussed. Moscow Tourism Department introduced Moscow’s tourism resources and status of development, especially the featured tourist routes customized according to Chinese tourists’ characteristics and interests. The investigation group suggested that Moscow further specify their featured tourism products according to the spotlights of travel such as “Chinese Red Tourism”, “Belt and Road Initiative”, and so on. They also suggested that Moscow provide Chinese tourists with more specific services by taking their consumption habits into consideration, and hang up Chinese or English signs on the street or inside scenic areas.
