Since years, Romania is trying to find its way in achieving the development of tourism. Since years, the quality of human resources working in tourism was stressed as a major weakness. The present paper is the result of a common effort of researchers and professionals in tourism from Romania and Germany, who tried to imagine and to plan a local training and competence tourism centre in Suceava – as a pilot structure that could assure an increase the quality of tourism, through courses and hands-on programs delivered to the new or existing employees. The conclusions presented hereby are only the beginning of a common effort keen to identify additional causes and solutions.
