Regional development

Success of cities and regions - just like the success of any organization - is always the result of a well thought through strategy and its consistent implementation. Failing to plan equals planning to fail. A good plan is worth nothing if it is not implemented. Cities and regions are in competition, just like companies; they compete for resources, investors and people. In this fierce competition, they have to offer a combination of various things, but in the end, they need to become a place to live and a place to do business. As simple as it sounds, though, becoming such an area is far from being easy. It requires long-term commitment, dedication, good governance and an integrated strategy, broken down into well thought through, feasible and sustainable development projects. It is the hard way, with no shortcuts and with quite a few bumps along the way.
