•      EURO CONSULTING GROUP GEIE
•      As part of a transnational cooperation project, it was a natural step to establish Euro Consulting Group – GEIE .
•      This European Economic Interest Group was founded in July 2005 in Vibo Valentia, and is made up of Local Action Groups (LAGs)
       from 6 different European countries.
•      Created as added value, it follows the common operating structure that the partners have begun to pursue in order to facilitate the
       implementation of activities to develop and promote the involved areas. These areas include the region of Calabria in Italy; the
       province of Teruel in Spain; Heraklion, Chania and Lassithi (Crete) in Greece, the Loire Valley in France, Castelo Branco and
       Gouvenia in Portugal and Larnaca in Cyprus.
•      The aim of the member states is to facilitate and develop their work, as well as improve and optimise the outcome of their projects
       by accomplishing the following objectives:
•                 Developing transnational cooperation in the technical and financial sector, and trade;
•                 Promoting research & development, improvement and transfer of new technologies and of social, productive, financial
       and economic systems, whether they are public or private, on a European and international level.
•      In the future, the EEIG will endeavour to guarantee the sustainability of its collaboration. It will have the task of preparing new
       project proposals for its own members and searching for new financing opportunities on a national and EC level.
•      THE OBJECTIVES OF THE EEIG
•      In order to facilitate and develop the economic activities of its members, the constitution of the EEIG needs:
•                 to target its own initiatives towards supporting and promoting development and employment in the participating areas,
       bringing its own activities in line with the objectives of the national, EC, regional, provincial and local development plans.
•      In order to achieve this aim, the EEIG works in the following fields:
•                 rural development activity;
•                 tourism, rural tourism and agrotourism;
•                 support for small firms, handicrafts and local services;
•                 development and marketing of local agricultural products and handicrafts;
•                 promotion and creation of information and data transmission links within and outside of the specific intervention area;
•                 consultancy and research in socio-economic and environmental fields;
•                 participation in EC programs and project biddings;
•                 promotion of the associated firms through their participation at meetings, fairs, congresses, seminars and exhibitions in
       Europe and worldwide;
•                  quality control and creation of quality labels;
•                  setting-up training courses in the relevant EEIG competence areas;
•                  promotion of forms of aggregation, cooperation and cultural and social exchanges between countries in Europe and
       worldwide.

                 transnational partnership that is part of the
                 Community project LEADER+. Co.G.A.L is an
                 agency that promotes the local development
                 with headquarters in Vibo Valentia, Calabria.
             •   The province of Vibo Valentia is characterized
                 by a particular beauty in natural and
                 environmental resources. The costal part is the
                 area’s most known naturalistic resource
                 especially with the presence of Tropea that is
                 considered the Tyrrhenian’s pearl...
             •   The hinter land of the province with its
                 naturalistic resources is defined by two
                 distinct and morphological areas, the hilly
                 MontePoro and the mountainous Serre.
             •   Poro’s plateau rises over the sea Tyrrhenian
                 through Agitola, whether Mesima and Serre
                 form a small world in their self. What
                 distinguishes this area from the other parts of
                 Calabria is precisely its particular structure
                 with various crystalline cliffs predominately
                 composed by granites, the mild climate, the
                 diverse greenery and the large number of
                 habitants who live in numerous small centers.

•      The area’s complex orography and in particular that of Monte Poro’s plateau, the rich fauna of Capo Vaticano, the
       important presence of typical cultivation (Tropea’s red onion) and the culturally rich rural areas, the historical-
       cultural testimonies widespread in the whole area; are fundamental components of a great environmental fortune,
       effortlessly recognizable and yet scarcely protected.
•
•      The area of the Serre is distinguished for the pasture lands and the high-tree forests which occupy 60% of the area
       and that, from an naturalistic point of view, it represents a biotope of a high biological, scientific and panoramic
       significance. The forest land in particular with the presence of beech and fir trees and mixed formation of beech-fir
       woods, represents an uncontaminated oasis in the European environment.
•      The entire province of Vibo Valentia is characterized by a strong vocation towards tourism and in particular the rural
       one, based on the availability specialized in
•      Mediterranean products as well as those that come from the woods.

       improve the socio-economical condition of the local system in its complex through integrated actions in the most
       profitable sectors (rural tourism, environment, historic-cultural heritage, agricultural productions) in the area.
•      Their aim is :
•      To establish new companies, more specifically in the area of rural tourism;
•      To improve the quality of the actual supply in the area of rural tourism;

       particular through researching quality brands and recognizing the typical products and the structure of how the
       products will be transformed and commercialized;

•      To reinforce the cultural identity of the traditional customs by focusing on the intervention and the recuperation of
       the cultural and religious traditions, more specifically on the local crafts.

       benchmark markets of the of an extensive network of small agricultural agencies, located in areas of great
       panoramic attraction and productions and the services offered from the local system.

•      THE TRANSNATIONAL PROJECT
•      Network for the marketing of local products
•      and rural tourism
•      The “network for the marketing of local products and rural tourism” is the collective transnational cooperation project between
       several Local Action Groups (LAGs), as part of the EC Leader + Initiative.
•      The LAGs involved come from six different European countries: Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, Greece and Cyprus. In addition, there
       is an external partner, from Romania, who was invited to participate in this project, with the aid of financing from other EC
       programmes.
•      The aim of the transnational cooperation project is to promote, support and recognise the growth of local, inter-territorial and
       transnational cooperation in order to achieve mass production which will enable these products to enter the market and increase
       their market share.
•      In particular, these interventions are aimed at rural tourism and local products, whether farm produce or artisan handcrafts, with
       regular support for the producers.
•      The objectives of the transnational project are to:
•                 Improve the quality standards of the current rural economic system;
•                 Promote integrated tourist packages, combining local products, culture and tradition;
•                 Market “hamper baskets” of local products, identifying ways to promote the culture of the “Mediterranean Diet” as both
       beneficial to health and to the quality of life;
•                 Promote the diffusion of Information Technology and e-Commerce in rural areas;
•                 Set up long distance training courses primarily based on themes of common interest, such as the management and
       administration of development projects, local activity and tourist marketing;
•                 Enforce environmental preservation and development of alternative energy sources;
•                 Promote the historical, cultural and environmental heritage;
•                 Raise the awareness of the services and the quality of rural tourism.
•      Between now and 2008, the project aims to carry out several activities with the aim of achieving the proposed objectives:
•                 Develop the activities implemented within the framework of the Leader II initiative;
•                 Identify which products to promote in the hamper baskets;
•                 Organise and structure the supply of products in line with the high quality standards;
•                 Draw up trade and exchange agreements and import-export links;
•                 Promote and broaden transnational cooperation activity;
•                 Carry out internships, workshops and seminars among those involved in local development and

•      expand methodologies to create and develop enterprises in the rural tourism sector;
•                 Put into practice a concerted action to promote and market rural tourism products and services;
•                 Participate in international exhibitions and fairs, events to promote local culture and publish promotional material.
•      The beneficiaries of the current project are agricultural farms and enterprises, rural tourism enterprises, non-agricultural
       enterprises (SMEs and handicraft businesses), tourist enterprises, economic operators, local organisations and tourist operators.
•      The expected results of the cooperation project are the following:
•                 An exchange of good practises to foster a deeper understanding between the partners, the improvement of common
       work, the strengthening of the partnership, which could already be considered as permanent;
•                 A further extension of the local network to other enterprises in order to create a system of mass-production for the
       product that will be marketed;
•                 The development of firms operating in the areas targeted in the project;
•                 The creation of new tourist itineraries;
•                 The offer of rural tourist packages;
•                 The development of gastronomic, cultural, environmental and traditional resources;
•                 The setting up of various associations on the territories involved;
•                 The establishment of common instruments at a transnational level.
•      The aim of the project is to create a stable framework for a lasting collaboration, currently, as part of the Initiative Leader +, we
       intend to carry out the following activities by 2008, some of which have already been completed:
•                 Establish the EEIG’s constitution (European Economic Interest Grouping), which was founded in July 2005;
•       Participate in 2 international exhibition fairs in order to promote local products (at the Salone del Gusto in Turin, October 2006)
       and to promote rural tourism and agritourism (at the Salón Internacional del Turismo in Barcelona, April 2008);
•                 Organise 2 workshops, 1 for marketing for operators and another for tour operators working in rural tourism and
       agritourism in order to increase the interest among operators in this sector;
•                 Organise 4 themed seminars for operators in the sectors involved in the project of transnational cooperation to deal with
       the themes of rural tourism, agritourism, local products, the wine sector and wine making and organic products;
•                 Participate at a international training workshop in Brussels;
•                 Create 2 themed types of tourist packages – one dedicated to wine and food and the other to rural tourism;
•                 Publish promotional materials, in particular 5 guides for local products and for rural tourism;
•                 Publish in specialist magazines;
•                 Promote the use of information technology in the areas covered by the network through the creation of an intranet
       between the operators in the network from the 6 different countries.
