Border regions lag behind the EU average in the areas of infrastructure and economic restructuring, and feature high degrees of unemployment in industries and underdeveloped service sectors. To address existing structural problems, the operation TourismPartners Europe - development of European cross-border tourist destinations wants to enhance its partner regions socio-economic potentials through the design and promotion of European cross-border tourist destinations. Overall objective / Objectif général The main objective of the operation is to improve development strategies through the joint design and promotion of cross-border tourist destinations based on innovative service concepts and products. Through initialisation and continuous support of co-operations, involving policy makers, public administrations, tourist associations, SMEs, and their business supporting organisations, the operation wants to enhance tourism-related decision-making processes and help establish a common vision and specific actions for joint regional development. Expected results / Résultats attendus The operation will strengthen the economic competitiveness of partner regions, improve the market positioning of involved regions as European cross-border tourist destinations, and enhance general cross-border co-operation capabilities and effectiveness. Tourism-related decision-making processes will be facilitated and common actions will be agreed upon and brought into implementation. A co-operation and communication model for tourism-oriented regions will be made available that will be transferable to other regions and facilitate the joint development along new European internal and external borders.
