Türkiye: Increasing the Competitiveness of TR82 Region Fisheries and Tourism Businesses

The population of Türkiye’s TR82 region is on a decline as younger and skilled people leave for opportunities in major cities. Lack of agriculture and food sector commercialization, poor transportation, poor communication facilities, out of date or non-existent local infrastructure, and under utilisation of cultural and natural tourist assets are some of the major development challenges in the region.


The project enhances economic value add and competitiveness of local seafood/fishery and tourism small and medium-sized entities in the Kastamonu region. It does so through improving production, market conditions, and connections with new and existing markets.
