BERLIN PROCESS DRIVING REGIONAL COOPERATION AND EUROPEAN INTEGRATION
The Council for Inclusive Governance (CIG) brought together in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on November 14, 2022 a number of senior party officials from the Western Balkans to discuss regional cooperation in the framework of the Berlin Process (BP). Representatives of German Federal Foreign Office (AA) and the U.S. Department of State also took part in the meeting where they explained their governments’ efforts in supporting regional cooperation. BP is improving regional cooperation in the Western Balkans and also serving as a bridge between the region and the EU. The participants welcomed the three agreements reached in Berlin earlier in November and called on stakeholders to continue with the implementation of other Common Regional Market (CRM) measures. The roundtable was part of an initiative on regional cooperation generously supported by AA. This session was hosted by the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) in its headquarters. Below is the report from the discussions.
