Also, the lack of a clear legal field hinders the economic development strategy of creating this type of tourism and programs for its support and assistance".
An example of such an active participation of young people in the formation of the development of agribusiness vectors were scientific reports of students Olexandra Mogylna, Margaryta Piun, Alexander Korobov, Anna Lukashenko, Mykola Vernydub, Nadiya Lanchkovska, Constyantyn Kryuchkov, Dariya Samoylenko, Vladyslav Staschuk, Sergiy Medvid and Kateryna Yevgrashena.
During the discussion of the topic, it was emphasized that today in Ukraine should encourage the development of green tourism, as it is now only in its initial stages. Joining Ukraine and Zaporizhzhya region in particular to the development of agritourism will help to get additional sources of income to attract this industry entrepreneurs from rural areas to facilitate the development of rural infrastructure and increase labor employment of its residents in general.
After the event, Andriy Lynenko noted that "agritourism - a sector of the tourism industry, focused on the use of natural, cultural, historical and other resources in rural areas and its specific character to create an integrated tourism product".
