By developing a common strategy for tourism management, the project aims to boost the cooperation and networking between Italy, Albania and Montenegro, bringing up to the same standard for the quality of products and services offered, reunited under a unique cross-border brand identity, with the aim to identify Adriatic area peculiarities. In the meantime, the introduction of the selected areas in the tourism circles will boost the local economy and will in turn have positive effects on employment and will deter social poverty.
