Gate to Europe EGTC President
Welcome to our website!
It was a great honour for me when the founders of Gate to Europe EGTC decided to offer me the coordination in expertise field of EGTC in May 2012. It’s joying and in the same time it’s challenging because the cross border area needs integrated investments, developments those can be made only together. These developments process can be made only with helps of a joint institution.
Our objective after the establishment was to prepare for 2014-2020 financial programing period and we wanted to make well-known our development plans with the financing institutions. The bases of the development are: the agriculture, processing of agricultural products, renewables energies, sustainment of the creation of new jobs, social investments. Our aim is to create one dynamic area, able to self-sustaining and able to offer attractive life conditions and creation of an active economy. One of the basic element of development is the sustainment of expertise activities initiated by the NGOs in the field like the culture, tourism, traditions and history.
The strengths of the area are the followings: high quality agricultural lands, thermal waters, forests and the area soaring that “want to live”. The strengths is the existing partnership because 36 local public authorities works together for 2 years with the aim to obtain funding in the period 2014-2020. This funding can influence the development and future of the area for long term.
