Striving for the implementation of the international standards is very important for the application of the sustainable tourism development concept. International organisations, like the ECEAT and the EuroGites, have a special role in this process. Representing the non-governmental sector, these organisations as the associations of the national organisations have an important role in rushing the various forms of sustainable tourism development as well as the local initiative.
The CenORT, as a member of the ECEAT and the EuroGites, will strive from its side to spread this process in Serbia as well. This would have a very positive effect on the promotion and commercialisation of the special interest tourism products for which Serbia has appropriate resources (especially rural and eco-tourism).
