KOPAONIK – Regional cooperation in the Western Balkans has received a new impetus through the Berlin Process to design a common approach to addressing the key economic challenges and jointly respond to the demands of European and global markets, says Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) Secretary-General Goran Svilanović.

“The Multi-Annual Action Plan for a Regional Economic Area, developed by the RCC upon request of the region’s PMs, and adopted by them at the Western Balkans Summit in Trieste last summer, aims to adequately address many of the challenges the region faces,” a RCC statement quoted him as saying.

“Its implementation has already started in the areas of investments, digital agenda, mobility of highly-educated and skilled labour, while the trade segment of the MAP is covered by our partners from CEFTA,” he said at the Kopaonik Business Forum.
