It was highlighted that these two municipalities have been achieving successful cooperation and friendly relations for many years, and it was mentioned that they will continue to do so in the future, in order to improve the tourist offer. Milan Vukadinović, Mayor of Foča, pointed out that he had launched an initiative for a project that would solve the road infrastructure of the international road Plužine – Šćepan Polje – Foča, which would be of great importance for improving tourist infrastructure leading to the arrival of more tourists in this cross-border area.
