#S67 Baltic Sea Tourism Center (BSTC)

Priority Area Tourism - Reinforcing cohesiveness of the macro-region through tourism

The overall objective is to set up a self-sustaining governance structure called Baltic Sea Tourism Center whose area of responsibility focusses on the implementation of strategic and operational activities under the EUSBSR for tourism. The BSTC will serve as a liaison office associating the key stakeholders for sustainable and responsible tourism development and cooperation in the BSR. It will represent the common interests of business, academia and politics. Major operational tasks are to develop and implement joint long-term tourism marketing strategies, promote the image and awareness of the BSR as a coherent travel destination and to elaborate, support and cluster tourism projects and initiatives to strengthen the BSR cooperation. The BSTC further aims to facilitate the conversion of projects, projects results and temporary networks into sustainable long-term processes.
