In addition to Marković, prime minister of Albania Edi Rama, prime minister of Macedonia Zoran Zaev, prime minister of Serbia Ana Brnabić, prime minister of Kosovo Isa Mustafa, president of council of ministers of Bosnia and Herzegovina Denis Zvizdić as well as Johannes Hahn and World Bank representative Cyril Muller took part.
