Round table 'Image of the Crimea through its multinational diversity. Ways to build trust' took place in Crimea on 29 May 2012 as a part of the public campaign 'Week of Trust'

  The Round Table was attended by government officials, journalists and representatives of different cultural communities: Russian, Karaites, Germans, Poles, Jews, Czechs, Koreans and Azerbaijanis.

Deputy Chairman of the National Committee of Interethnic Relations and Deported Citizens of the Crimea, Emine Avamileva, told about what kind of work is being done with the various national groups by the Government of the Autonomous Republic. The representatives of national communities talked about the situation of their affairs, and came to the conclusion that all communities live together peacefully in the Crimea. There were suggestions to develop the image of the Crimea as a multinational and friendly region in order to attract tourists and visitors from other countries. For example, to organize the Festival of the Black Sea Cultures, or the festival of the 'Day of Peace' and 'Day of Tolerance' and invite participants from various cultural groups, with the support of the Government of Crimea. Meetings for the preparation and organization of the events will be scheduled on a regular basis. Issues of ethnic interaction and confidence building among the young people of different cultures - the basis for the development of the Crimea as a multi-cultural tourist region of Ukraine - was the official conclusion of the Round Table.
