The realization of this project is worth 211.225 euros, which is financed by the European union from funds of the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA). The COOR will implement the project in cooperation with the Center for Development of Inland Navigation (CRUP) from Croatia. The project began in December of last year.
The main objective of the project is the revitalization of the economy by encouraging the development of more well-known tourist offers and promotion of regional identity and tourism in the region of Posavina.
