Priorities for international cooperation

Main priorities of the REGION include: 1. The construction of Trans-European transport and energy networks. The interconnection of the Region with trans-European road and railroad networks and its promotion as an energy hub offer the possibility for a significant change in the productive base of the Region and the emergence of new, dynamic sectors, such as logistics, and

2. The utilization of all endogenous developmental characteristics of the Region that have not been adequately utilized to date, such as, for example, the particularly rich natural environment of the Region, which can serve as the basis for the development of tourism in mountainous and rural areas or other forms of alternative tourism, creating the necessary conditions for generating supplementary income and employment.
