№ 8 Summarize the text in English.


На сегодняшний день индустрия гостеприимства – это одна из крупных и быстро развивающихся систем сектора экономики. В любом гостиничном предприятии важное место отведено гостеприимству.

Анализ мировых тенденций в индустрии гостеприимства позволяет сделать вывод, что эта сфера деятельности имеет высокий доход и стремительные темпы развития.
Современная отечественная индустрия гостеприимства находится в процессе становления и направлена на получение прибыли от сотрудничества со своими клиентами. Нестабильная экономическая и политическая ситуация вызвала ряд проблем, с которыми столкнулась индустрия гостеприимства. Именно поэтому фирмы вынуждены пристально изучать складывающуюся конъюнктуру рынка. Поиск и использование фирмами различных форм бизнеса стали особым моментом для эффективного управления предприятиями индустрии гостеприимства. Существующая в настоящее время практика функционирования гостиничного бизнеса не отвечает мировым стандартам и требованиям, что вызвано низкой доходностью предприятий, связанных с управлением и эксплуатацией гостиниц. Отечественным предприятиям индустрии гостеприимства принадлежит наибольшая часть рынка, что выражается в низкой доходности и невозможности конкурировать с такими предприятиями, которые сконцентрированы в основном в Москве и Санкт-Петербурге. Иностранные корпорации создают монополию на российском рынке индустрии гостеприимства. А российские компании в свою очередь с легкостью отдают то, чего добились за определенный промежуток времени. Это объясняется тем, что отечественные предприятия отвыкли работать в конкурентной среде, следить за новинками на мировом рынке, внедрять новые программы и технологии. Названные факторы негативно влияют на желание клиентов пользоваться услугами подобных предприятий.
