“I am very pleased with the work and effort that the national experts presented. This is an excellent example of structured and meaningful regional cooperation that will bear fruit in the future.” commented Igor Nikoloski, SEECEL international expert and work group facilitator.

Mr. Tuna Sahin, vice president of KOSGEB, opened the meeting by saying that the region has plenty of potential and that “we should work from our common history to a shared future.” While closing the meeting, Ms. Efka Heder, SEECEL director, added that "it has been an immense pleasure to see this regional effort reach a key point in its development. It shows that open communication and exchange of experience can lead to significant regional progress and development."
