The partnership of the project Silc Road Local Culture selected the logo of the SILCNET label.
The SILCNECT Entrepreneurship Label is a certification system for entrepreneurs who offer tourism products on the Silk Road. The aim is to create a common instrument for stimulating local economies and creating synergies between the countries of the Black Sea basin.
A strategy, a plan and tools for promoting the SILCNET mark have also been developed for the introduction of the certification mark. Work is currently underway on the development of training materials for acquiring the quality mark of the services offered, and pilot training sessions are forthcoming.
Entrepreneurship training activities for the acquisition of SILCNECT Label will help create ideas for innovation, cooperation and trade connectivity among businesses in the field of tourism.
