10:00:56 SOUNDBITE by Johannes Hahn, (in ENGLISH): It's also about the different aspects which lead to growth and jobs, which are the most important ones. And of course, tourism is your main, it is your core opportunity and your core possibility. I think as it was also rightly said by the Governor, you should concentrate on what you have already, what you can provide, what are your assets, your USP's, and this is the cultural heritage. 00:00:30
