"Networking and lobbying are essential, and I consider these among the main tasks in the near future to reach more visibility and awareness for our association on different levels: liaising with other European associations, reinforcing the exchange and partnership with the European Institute of Cultural Routes, developing a sustainable strategy for the collaboration with the tourism industry – all this is necessary to raise awareness and receive support for the EHTTA’s goals: the exchange of good practices and co-operation among the members to enhance the quality as a cultural route and obtain financial resources to strengthen our approaches and work with all of its facets."
