And the high assessment obtained gives confidence that in the scale of the tourism industry of the country Yakutia is on the right path. We are doing everything possible so that people all over the world know about our republic and come here to feel the breath of the Pole of Cold. I hope my grandchildren and great-grandchildren will continue my work to which I have dedicated the last 14 years after retirement, Tamara Vasilieva said after the awards ceremony.
