Exploring Tourism Opportunities: Lithuania-Poland Border Region


In a joint effort by the European Commission’s Directorate General of Regional and Urban Development, the Ministry of the Interior of Lithuania (MoI), and the Ministry of Development Funds and Regional Policy of Poland and the Joint Technical Secretariat, a new study is underway. Titled “Directions and Perspectives of the Development of the Tourism Sector in the Border Region of Lithuania and Poland,” this study aims to uncover the hidden potential within the Lithuanian-Polish border area.

On May 14, 2024, the MoI organized an event to kick off this study, marking an important step in cross-border cooperation. The Deputy Minister Arnoldas Abramavičius welcomed the participants of the meeting and wished fruitful discussions on possibilities to boost tourism in the region. Lithuanian policy makers and tourism experts were also invited to attend the kick off meeting in a hybrid format. During the event, attendees learned about the reasons behind the study, its goals, research methods, expected outcomes, and the experts involved.

At its heart, the study’s main goal is to find ways to develop the tourism sector in the Lithuanian-Polish border region. By examining this region closely, the study hopes to offer practical recommendations based on thorough analysis and input from various stakeholders including public and private sectors.

As the study progresses, it holds the promise of not only boosting tourism but also strengthening ties between Lithuania and Poland. By highlighting the region’s rich culture, natural beauty, and historical significance, it aims to create a vibrant tourism industry that benefits both countries.

In summary, this collaborative effort demonstrates the power of working together to unlock the potential of cross-border regions. Through careful research, open dialogue, and coordinated action, the Lithuanian-Polish border region can become a model of sustainable tourism and cooperation.
