The Greek delegation had also separate meetings with the Director-General of the Council of Europe, Mrs. Snezana Markovic, and the Executive Secretary of the Council of Europe’s Enlarged Partial Agreement on Cultural Routes, and Director of the Institute of Cultural Routes, Mr. Stephano Dominioni to discuss issues related to the organization of the 2020 Forum in Chania.
The first official presentation of the new “Cultural Route”, “Historic Cafes Route”, was held at the 9th 
International Advisory Forum “Cultural Routes” of the Council of Europe  held in Sibiu, Romania from 2-4 October 2019, presented by EHICA’s Associate Professor, Ph.D. in Modern Greek History from Vienna University, Associate Researcher at the Hellenic Folklore Research Centre of the Academy of Athens and Academic Staff at the Hellenic Open University.
It is worth noting that the promotion of the 10th  International Advisory Forum “Cultural Routes” of the Council of Europe   to be held in Chania on 7-9 October 2020 has been quite successful, since the idea of EHICA’s Founder and President Vassilis Stathakis to offer local products of  Crete at Sibiu, brought to the exhibition table of Greece all the participants of the forum who said that they will be more than happy to visit Chania, Crete next year!
