From 21 until 27 of June 2009, the Mayors from the East and South-East planning region had a study tour in Germany, Saxony.
During the study tour, the Mayors had the opportunity to visit local self-government units and business sector on local and regional level, thus they were introduced to the good practices, which may be adapted to our conditions.
The Mayors used the study trip for exchange of experiences and ideas, in the sense of upgrading local and regional development.
The Mayors visited Chemnitz/Zwackau region, the municipalities Nebelschutz and Zittau, and administrative area Vogland.
Study tours of this kind are very productive in planning regional development and implementation of projects, having in mind that Germany is leader in regional development within the European Union.
