Our aim is to work together in developing various tourist services and special interest tourism characteristic for the countries of the region, says the president of UHPA, Mr Boris Žgomba
On the 15th of May in Belgrade, a cooperation agreement was signed between the associations of travel agencies in countries of the region (Serbia, Montenegro, FYR of Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania and Croatia).
The signing of the cooperation agreement was witnessed by Boris Žgomba, the president of UHPA and ECTAA; Branimir Gvozdenović, the Montenegrin Minister of Sustainable Development and Tourism; numerous high-level guests and CEOs of various associations of the signatory countries.
The basic idea of the cooperation initiative between the associations of travel agencies is to work together on various project and development activities in order to stimulate the development of tourism sector and business development of travel agencies in the region.
The aim is to develop a more effective cooperation through business relations and educational activities between business entities of the countries in the region. Another important aim is to establish models of developing common tourist programmes in a short period of time in order to place them in other markets throughout Europe and the world.
The president of UHPA and ECTAA, Mr Boris Žgomba, emphasises that the agreement lays the groundwork for a successful regional collaboration and further development of special interest tourism in the region.
“The coordination will enable every tourist agency in the region to make full use of the potential offered by this kind of collaboration. The aim is to work together on the development of tourist services and special interest tours characteristic for the countries of the region. Another important goal is to create a common tourist product based on the development of sustainable tourism and trans-boarder collaboration between the signatory countries. Projects will be financed through funds of the European Union, international organizations and signatory countries. Croatia, as a new Member State of the European Union, will be the grant-holder of the programmes via the national association of travel agencies (UHPA),” says Mr Žgomba.
