The meeting of Islands Economy working Group, led by OTIE , focused on finding a common working basis for a open discussion which simulates future research on specific islands issues. Existing development models are not suitable for island territories, as for their specificities in terms of theoretical knowledge and operative tools, and islands should be considered as a region itself. Opportunities for islands growth are provided by European Union Funds. For instance, ALTER ECO project, funded by INTERREG MED Programme, which involves OTIE as technical partner responsible for testing methods and tools to identify and design alternative tourist strategies to enhance the local sustainable development of tourism by promoting Mediterranean Identity.
