The Voice of the Village organization considers this place an opportunity for the economic development of small and medium-sized businesses, which can further increase the income of locals living in these areas.

For example, to prepare a detailed urban plan, to encourage citizens to network and to somehow improve their capacities in accommodation facilities, to open restaurants and other types of catering facilities that will be an opportunity to attract of domestic and foreign tourists, said Elizabeta Cvetkovska, member of the Voice of the Village.
