Western Silk Road Capacity Building Workshops

In the framework of the UNWTO/EU Western Silk Road Tourism Development Initiative, the World Tourism Organization organizes two Western Silk Road Capacity Building Workshops.

To be held in 2017, these capacity building workshops aim to attract as many interested stakeholders as possible - Silk Road destinations (national, regional and local), tour operators, SMEs, academic institutions, etc. - and focus on joint training and the development of new tourism partnerships.

The 1st International Western Silk Road Workshop is to be held in Alexandroupoli, Greece on 26-27 April 2017. The workshop is jointly organized by UNWTO, the Ministry of Tourism of Greece and the region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace of Greece.

The second Western Silk Road Workshop will take place in Bulgaria in June 2017.
