Roundtable on regional cooperation on the development of sustainable tourism in the Sava river basin was held on 7th March 2017 in Zagreb. The Roundtable was organized by the Sava Commission and it brought together representatives from the ministries of the Parties to the Framework Agreement on the Sava River Basin in charge of tourism, water and navigation, representatives of chambers of commerce, development agencies and tourist offices. 

Given the importance and great potential of sustainable tourism in the Sava River Basin, the participants of the Round Table supported the idea of setting up a joint working group for the development of sustainable tourism in the Sava River Basin as a mechanism of permanent participation of ministries responsible for tourism in the implementation of joint activities under the coordination of the Sava Commission . The importance of identifying regional projects in the field of tourism of common interest as well as funds for the financing of these projects was pointed out. Participants supported the activities of the Sava Commission in the field of tourism and projects proposals related to the development of nautical tourism (eg. A master plan for the development of nautical tourism) and ecotourism (Danube Wets Ecotour, Sava BIKE, the establishment of eco-badge of the Sava River).

In this regard, the proposed signing of the joint statement of Ministers of the Sava countries in charge of tourism as a basis for further regional cooperation on the development of sustainable tourism in the Sava River Basin was welcomed.
