LOCAL INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Promoting the tourism potential (attractions) in the cross-border region and the diversification of the existing cross-border tourist services;

Integrating the cross-border infrastructure and tourism products in the European circuits;

Building the Calafat-Vidin bridge will facilitate the road and rail links between Romania and Bulgaria, Greece, Turkey, Near and Middle East ;

The creation, as a result of building the Calafat-Vidin bridge, of the Calafat "free zone" (a key point in international traffic by road, rail and river) and of the "industrial park";

Potential for exploitation of the Danube as a low-cost transport corridor;

The development of Danube tourism, of tourism ports (Calafat, Cetate, Corabia, Balasan). Modernization, refurbishment, possibly expanding the port area as needed;

Good opportunities for developing agro-tourism and cruise tourism on the Danube;

Wine-viticultural potential localities (Segarcea, Sadova, Dăbuleni, Bechet, Banu-Maracine, Bradesti, Brabova, Plenita, Calafat Vineyard - Poiana Mare and Cetate wine centres);

Hunting and Fishing - meadow landscapes contiguous to the Danube, with patches of forest, dunes, pools of water that lure sport anglers; lakes remaining after hydro-ameliorative works (Maglavit, Ciuperceni), representing a real potential for sport fishing or recreation; fish potential from lakes and rivers;

DATOURWAY Project

LOCAL INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

Promoting cultural objectives and capitalising the traditions, crafts and ethno-folk customs as a tourist product;

Making viable and designing the Debarcader - Bascov - Calafat area for tourism;Two major areas are the local potential in this respect: the Ostrovu Mare area (landscape values) proposed to be extended through the development of a recreation area with specific facilities in the east part of the town (through the dismantling and relocation of the industrial units and premises) and the Bascov area, proposed to be developed by approvals and compatible constructions;

The revitalization of routes supported by buildings with architectural-urban value will be underlined (in this respect specific programs of restoration, renovation and rehabilitation of valuable monuments will be implemented) ;

The development in the west of Calafat of an area for leisure, recreation and tourism through buildings and specific facilities, taking into account the unstable nature of the land subjected to natural hazards of flooding. Currently the area is occupied by productive premises or warehouses for which dismantling and relocation are proposed in other compatible areas, reserved for this purpose.

The local administrations are interested in attracting some investors for creating, developing, modernising the tourism infrastructure in view of capitalising the natural tourist resources and improving the quality of the tourist services, supporting the creation of guesthouses, motels, holiday homes, hotels, restaurants with local specific, hunting and fishing centres, camps and sport cantonments, camping, summer sport basis, etc.
