The Western Silk Road Roadmap is a summary of work conducted by UNWTO and the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs (DG Grow) of the European Commission (EC). The work included research into the existing usage of the Silk Road identity, connections between key destinations through tangible and intangible heritage, and the potential of a Western Silk Road tourism brand. Concepts were developed to strengthen the use of such a brand to bring benefits to destinations and two capacity building workshops were held on how to progress from theory to practice in developing the Western Silk Road as a transnational tourism route. This roadmap aims to present a common tourism development plan for the route.
