Importance The article studies the relationship between sustainable socio-economic development of regions and the development of recreation and tourism.
Objectives Based on empirical data, the paper aims to show the relationship between the development of recreation and tourism and sustainable socio-economic development of the regions of Russia.
Methods For the study, we used a correlation analysis.
Results We show that tourism's development, in general, has a positive effect on the steady socio-economic development of the regions of the Siberian Federal District.
Conclusions We conclude that there is a close link between the sustainable socio-economic development of the regions of the Siberian Federal District and the development of recreation and tourism. The data obtained allow us to suggest that the development of recreation and tourism in the region, in addition to the territorial, climatic, socio-economic and institutional factors, gets influenced by some other factors, requiring further studying.
