      The forum is held with the support of Russia’s Trade and Industry Chamber and Iceland’s embassy in Russia. Within it, the two countries are expected to sign an intergovernmental agreement on cooperation in tourism.

      The Icelandic delegation will be led by Industry, Energy and Tourism Minister Katrin Juliusdottir. She will speak of Iceland's potential in tourism industry. The meeting will also be attended by the Icelandic ambassador in Russia and representatives of an Icelandic air career "Icelandair".

      The Russian delegation will be represented by Rosturizm head Alexander Radkov and Yury Barzykin, deputy president of the Russian Tourism Industry Union.

For example, they started campaign, within which common Icelanders invite tourists to their houses in order to acquaint them with Icelandic culture and customs.
