Maribor Development Agency has developed an online database of business premises and land in Podravje region. The main purpose of the online database, supported by the Municipality of Maribor, is attracting domestic and foreign investors in the region.
The database was created in the frame of the project City Network Graz - Maribor, which is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, in the frame of the Operational programme Slovenia-Austria 2007-2013. The project involves the Municipality of Maribor as a leading partner and the City of Graz and the Regionalmanagement Graz und Graz Umgebung as a project partners.
The aim of the project is greater integration (networking) of both cities’ administrations, institutionalization and provision of continuity of the relations established between authorities, on both political and administrative level. The content of the project is related to the following areas: "Environment and Mobility", "Green spaces and Green networks" and "Economy and Urban Development." Studies, development plans and pilot cases carried out will serve as an incentive for the development of the further common projects.
