Signing of an Agreement on Continuation of Cooperation between RCC and ETF

Goran Svilanovic, Secretary General of the Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) and Cesare Onestini, newly appointed Director of the European Training Foundation (ETF) are to sign an Agreement on Continuation of Cooperation between the two organizations in Brussels, on 22 November 2017. 

The signing ceremony would also be attended by Genoveva Ruiz Calavera, Director for Western Balkans at European Commissions (EC) Directorate-General for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) and Kiril Kiryakov, International Policy Officer-External Relations and Enlargement at EC’s Directorate-General Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.  

The past cooperation agreement between the RCC and ETF was signed for the period 2014-2017.
