An itinerary revolving around olive oil and wine to foster tourism connected to these staples of the Mediterranean diet is currently under consideration as Project to bolster competitiveness and regional exchanges.
A work plan, objectives, and methodology were outlined at an initial meeting in Barcelona at the agricultural councillor’s office of the Generalitat attended by Italy’s local action group Terre Shardana and the Israeli tourism ministry, which are taking part in the initiative, Generalitat sources said on Thursday.
The itinerary is part of the European programme ENPI CBC Med for transnational cooperation, 90% of which is funded by the European Union.
The project discussed in Barcelona is slated to run 20 months until the summer of 2015 and aims to bolster competitiveness and product marketing and to intensify an exchange of people and goods across the Mediterranean region.
