CEFTA Week 2016 which was held in Podgorica on 7 December attracted over 100 participants who took part in a variety of CEFTA related events. Participants included government officials from all the CEFTA Parties, regional and international organisations, the business community, academics and international experts from the EU, GIZ, RCC, OECD UNCTAD and IFC/WBG.
CEFTA Week 2016 provided an excellent opportunity to highlight the progress achieved by the CEFTA Parties in the last ten years and to disseminate the current regional and global challenges in trade related areas such as regional integration, transport and investments and regional aspects of trade facilitation in CEFTA, customs and rules of origin and services. It also provided an excellent opportunity to assess progress and economic impact to date, to consider new challenges and provided an opportunity for key stakeholders to make observations and suggestions on potential future developments.
