The Cross-Border description
• Borders are human-made, both physical and in the minds.
• Capitals far away from the borders should understand and address the sentiments, livelihood and basic needs of the people living in the borders and constantly seek cooperation of neighboring countries.
• Tourism should be seen as meaningful tool to bring our borders and communities out of isolation and create better people to people participation along the borders.
