What is a tourism cluster?

30 March 2021

A tourism cluster is a sectoral, territorial and voluntary association of business structures which cooperate closely with the scientific (educational) institutions, non-governmental organizations and local authorities, with a view to improve competitiveness of the tourism product and facilitate the economic development of the region.  In our opinion, a tourism cluster is an optimal way of cooperation capable of addressing any issues in the sphere of development and support of tourism in the region.
