The ITALBALK project, financed by the Italian Government under the program for the support to regional cooperation, strives on the need of improving connections to commercial traffic between Italy and some Balkan countries with special attention to integrated logistics and transport services. Specifically, the sub-project 4th focuses on the Bar-Belgrade rail/road route through Montenegro and Serbia, in the light of the considerable Italian interests in Serbia and of the possibility for further market penetration in the neighboring countries (Romania, Hungary).


The culture is based on processes of development and remains closely linked to economic performances. There can be no economic development without cultural development. An example of the interaction comes from historic development highlighted by the "Four Tigers", where to economic performance have contributed both the practical implementation of modern economic theories and strong local cultural roots. Moreover, the economic environment acts as a vehicle of cultural values.


A recent meeting between the Italian partners of the project Adriatic Danubian Clustering has highlighted the diversity of ways and needs that articulate business internationalization when in particular it concern business clusters. They range from the emerging need for a "vertical" and inter-sectoral  integration in the Veneto between districts to a more horizontal and widespread district in Emilia Romagna. But a purely commercial approach often reduces internationalization to production relocation in a logic of cost-cutting and/or of market-seeking. This limitation of the approach is likely to be added to other known constraints of Italian companies internationalization that will compete with foreign companies (and their territorial and institutional environment) able to relate with  the host area and its companies within a territorial a partnership framework.
