On this occasion Mr. Serban Constantin has addressed the Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development a question regarding the possibility of financing all tourist activities in the new NPRD namely if other tourism areas besides agro-tourism are going to be financed / developed.
The conference was also attended by many students who were able to learn that Romanian village development must continue on a sustainable basis without having a negative impact on the local community and its members, in order to achieve social sustainability by developing those forms of tourism which do not disturb and do not interrupt the daily life of the Romanian village population.
