Meeting of the SEEIC-CEFTA Joint Working Group on Investments
The Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) and Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA) Joint Working Group on Investments (JWGI) is to meet in Podgorica on 12 December 2018.
In the past the JWGI had worked on developing the Regional Investment Reform Agenda (RIRA), which has been approved by the region’s Ministers of Economy at the SEEIC Ministerial Meeting on 11 May 2018, and subsequently endorsed by the region’s Prime Ministers at the WB6 London Summit in July 2018. This was followed by preparations of the Individual Reform Action Plans (IRAPs) in six Western Balkans economies (WB6) that are to bring RIRA to the implementation and actual reforms on ground in each of the participating economies.
This meeting is to be an opportunity to take account of the work done in IRAPs preparation and their adoption by the respective governments, and also discuss the next steps in implementation and monitoring. Furthermore, the meeting will review the proposal for the joint regional programme in investment promotion, including the regional investor outreach and capacity building.
