Trends of development of administrative management of recreational and tourist nature production in domestic and international practice


Introduction. The article deals with the main tendencies of development of recreational and tourist nature use in the context of ownership rights to natural resources. It should be noted that to date, there is no clear distinction between property rights and the definition of the conditions of possession, disposal and use of recreational and tourist resources as well as methodical provision of valuation, assessment of recreational and tourist resources and determining the amount of damage caused as a result of violations of environmental legislation.

Aim and tasks. The purpose of the article is to analyze trends in the development of administrative management of recreational and tourist use in the domestic and international plane. The set goal requires the following tasks: to analyze the ownership of natural resources in Ukraine and in the international aspect; to substantiate the necessity of integrated approach to conducting ecologically oriented entrepreneurial activity in the recreational and tourist area with the definition of the main directions of this activity and the control levers.

Research results. Today, there is no complete interconnection of recreational and tourist use with three spheres - economic, environmental and social, which imposes certain restrictions on maximizing economic revenues from recreational and tourist flows and preventing damage to the natural environment. There are also no methodological recommendations that would take into account the legal factor - the consistency of the socio-ecological and economic factors of recreation and tourism activities with the right to own natural resources. There is no distinction between types of economic activity using the recreational and tourist resource and ownership of this resource, taking into account the privileges and tax provisions of the entrepreneur. At the same time when calculating tax provisions from the introduction of economic activities, only the profit of the enterprise, which is transferred to the state budget, is taken into account, and only the parking fee and resort tax are levied to the local. The fee for the use of natural resources is also not calculated taking into account the activity of the enterprise.

Conclusion. The main gaps in domestic legislation in the field of administrative management of recreational and tourist nature use are determined and directions of its improvement are described. Consequently, the task of administrative management of recreational and tourist nature use is to form an ecologically oriented model of entrepreneurial activity that will be legally sound and economically profitable both for the entrepreneur and for budget replenishment.
