The First Grant Award Ceremony of the Tourism Development and Promotion Project
The RCC implemented and EU funded Tourism Development and Promotion Project will award the first twelve, out of 30 + grants, at an official ceremony in Sarajevo on Friday, 9 November 2018.
Seven out of twelve grants being awarded in the first cycle will be used to develop and promote new regional cultural routes and products including Roman archaeological sites, WWII monuments, fortifications, and cultural heritage of capital cities. The other five will contribute to further development and promotion of the existing adventure tourism routes (Via Dinarica) and development of new products including a regional horseback riding trail.
This project, worth EUR 5 million, works to consolidate and diversify cultural and adventure tourism offer in the six Western Balkans economies, develop joint regional tourism routes and products, improve infrastructure and quality of services along selected routes, and globally promote joint regional offer.
To achieve its goals, the project, among other, utilises a EUR 1.62 million worth grant scheme to contribute to joint regional tourism routes development and improvement of quality of services and infrastructure.
