Western Balkans Ministers of European Affairs and Finance met with focus on Growth Plan and Regional Cooperation

The Western Balkans Ministers of European Affairs and Finance convened today Kotor ahead of the Leaders’ Summit.

The meeting focused on the Growth Plan, emphasising the necessity of regional cooperation and economic integration. At the “One Region, Common Vision” event, Lulzim Rafuna, Chairman of the Western Balkans 6 Chamber Investment Forum (WB6 CIF), highlighted the transformative impact of establishing a Common Regional Market for the Western Balkans.

He noted that uniting efforts and resources towards a common goal unlocks numerous opportunities for economic progress and prosperity. Central to this vision is the creation of a Common Regional Market, a transformative platform designed to eliminate barriers and facilitate the free movement of goods, services, and investments across the region. Rafuna pointed out that this initiative is crucial for driving economic development, fostering innovation, creating jobs, enhancing trade, and making the region more attractive to foreign direct investment (FDI).

By presenting a unified market with harmonised regulations and standards, investor confidence is boosted, attracting the capital needed for economic expansion and infrastructure development, Rafuna stated.

He emphasised that the full implementation of the Common Regional Market is a top priority for businesses in the Western Balkans, aligning with the New Growth Plan for the region.

As the region moves forward, Rafuna called for a reaffirmation of commitment to realising this collective vision for the Western Balkans 6. He urged the region to seize the opportunity to harness the transformative power of a Common Regional Market, leveraging collective strengths to build a future of shared prosperity and opportunity for future generations.
