Regional Cooperation Day in Brussels

05.05.2015

The Regional Cooperation Day will be held in Brussels on May 6, 2015. The event will be an opportunity for BiEPAG to present a policy paper focusing on the enlargement process as well as regional developments, challenges and opportunities in the Western Balkan economies.

What are the pressing issues of the Western Balkans? To map the current state of affairs and to continue to look for solutions, the Regional Cooperation Council in collaboration with the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the EU and the European Fund for the Balkans, have initiated the Regional Cooperation Day in Brussels.

Last August, the Berlin Process started a cycle of enhanced EU engagement with the Western Balkans by placing a special emphasis on EU Enlargement. The core of the Berlin Process is regional cooperation and how it enhances peace and reconciliation and strengthens economic governance, competitiveness and sustainable growth as well as connectivity for the Western Balkans. This May 6 will be an occasion to present the current state of regional cooperation, two-thirds of the way between the Berlin and the Vienna summits.
