The Programme area faces significant challenges in terms of ensuring its competitiveness and upgrading its human capital. The problems are related to the significant numbers of unqualified human resources, ageing population, high unemployment rates, especially among young people and women, and serious population imbalances between urban over-populated centres and rural under-populated peripheral areas. Most of the enterprises operating in the CBC area are small or very small and present a delay in the adoption of new technologies and the rationalization of their production capacity. On the other hand, there is a number of prestigious Academic and Research Institutions in the region and a free and unhindered access for all people to all levels of education.The project will have a real impact on the cooperation area, since Ministries are Partners of "TRIGGER" project.
