“The text of a new agreement on visa-free group tourist exchange between Russia and China will be discussed in Beijing on April 28”, - said the Deputy Head of the Department for International Cooperation of Rosturizm Vladimir Fomin.

He noted that the current agreement on visa-free group exchange between Russia and China was signed 17 years ago. It doesn’t correspond to the existing volumes of transportation between Russia and China and to the modern standards of document circulation and a number of other points. Now it is a time to rework it completely.

"In particular, the new project provides a reduction of the composition of the tourist group from five to three people and an increase of the period of stay in the host country from 15 to 21 days", - added V. Fomin.
