Sofia. The tourism potential of the Danube region is enormous and could bring many economic benefits, said EU Commissioner for Regional Policy Corina Cretu at a press conference within the seventh annual forum of the Danube macro-regional strategy, Focus News Agency reports.
“112 million people live in this region. This is one fifth of the EU population. This strategy, launched in 2010, is a reflection of European cooperation,” said Commissioner Cretu. She pointed out that the Danube is the most ‘international’ river in the world and the states of the Danube region can deal much better with challenges, if they are united. “2018 is the year of European cultural heritage and this is reflected in our cooperation. This year’s forum is related to its preservation, new technologies, security and mobility. The potential of this region is enormous. Tourism can bring many economic benefits to the Danube region, while at the same time overcoming some shortcomings in the sector over recent years, such as insecure jobs,” the Commissioner commented. "Our policy is to improve the quality of employment in the Danube region, and this is true of tourism. This is done by funding different projects and the necessary support for them,” she added.
