ENGINEERS OF TRENTO AND ATB: A NEW AGREEMENT//
After the signature of the agreement between Ordine degli Ingegneri della Provincia di Trento (Order of Engineers of the Province of Trento) and ATB, a meeting at the Order premises was organised on the 22nd of January to present the collaboration between Trentino and the Balkan countries.
The floor was first given to the vice-president of the Order, Massimo Garbari who contextualised the agreement and introduced the aim of the meeting. As underlined by Garbari, the agreement is only the first step to exchange information and create both fruitful collaborations and further development between ATB-Order relations. Then Garbari gave the floor to Maurizio Camin, director of ATB.
After a brief introduction, he illustrated the Former Yugoslavian dissolution process, to better contextualise the Autonomous Province of Trento intervention in the Balkans and ATB action. Why do we still focus on the Balkans TODAY? And WHY the Balkans? These are the questions to which they answer thank to the presentation of the territories where ATB works, and the target areas of the Autonomous Province’s decentralised cooperation programme between the Balkans and Trentino. Due to its relevance, a specific attention was given to Piattaforma125.
A lot of questions followed the presentation and engineers’ interventions who used to work with ATB. The importance of the relations with the local territories institutions came to light, since these bonds represent the pivotal element to activate the relations, also from an economic perspective.
The agreement with the Order of Engineers and the interest in the Piattaforma125 represent a further incentive for ATB action aimed at developing the relations between Trentino and the Balkans, even the economic connections, from a sustainable development perspective that is environmentally and local communities friendly. ATB mission is a working action-together-WITH, respecting the actors involved and introducing the Trentino system in an integrated manner to better highlight its strength points and peculiarities.
