Developing resorts and attracting new investments - are the main responsibilities that the newly created Resorts Development Agency will have. The new LEPL should carry out important work, which competence will include promoting the development of infrastructure in resorts.

The agency is required to prepare geo-information maps, as well as prepare a list of various information about the resorts such as weather, economic state, resources availability, rules and policy, and creating and organizing databases.

The functionalities include:
