Kick-off meeting of the Regional Expert Advisory Working Group (REAWG) on Value-Chain Assessment (VCA), 15 – 16 March 2018, Skopje, Macedonia


SWG and GIZ took the initiative to develop and apply a mechanism for assessing the tourism and agro-food potentials in 7 target rural cross-border areas: Prespa, Sharra, Drina-Tara, Drina-Sava, Prokletije – Bjeshket e Namuna, Pcinja and Krsh.

The assessment will present the possibilities for diversification of the economic activities in the cross-border regions, and for development of short value chain projects in tourism and agri-food sectors.
