SARAJEVO, 14 April 2010 – The Regional Cooperation Council (RCC) Secretariat launched today a redesigned version of the organization’s website and a new publication, the monthly e-newsletter.

The new website features enable users to customize the content while maintaining the simplicity of design, which is meant to provide even easier browsing through the content. They also allow subscription to the newsletter, RCC news and events, in addition to press releases, documents and publications the users have been able to subscribe to so far.

Besides a foreword by Hido Biščević, RCC Secretary General, the first issue of the RCC newsletter hosts interviews with Milo Đukanović, Prime Minister of Montenegro; Gordana Kovačević, President of Ericsson Nikola Tesla company; and Štefan Füle, EU Commissioner for Enlargement and European Neighbourhood Policy.

“In reaching out to a wider audience, by introducing this newsletter as part of a stronger profiling of the Regional Cooperation Council beyond the limits of political and governmental audiences, we aim to be part of the necessary change towards making the best use of vast human and natural resources in South East Europe”, Secretary General Biščević says in the foreword to the first issue of the newsletter.

“But, just as any, this change needs to be sustained and managed, in order to bring a shift away from old stereotypes, scepticism and self-sufficiencies and give way to openness based upon mutual respect, cooperation sustaining national interest, and the best use of rich diversities and vast potentials shared by the countries and the peoples in our region.”

The RCC newsletter carries articles on strengthened regional cooperation in South East Europe as a remedy for economic crisis, as well as on development of competitive economies in the Western Balkans in times of hardship. It contains a commentary from Turkey on effects of the global economic downturn on South East Europe, and information on more RCC activities and events, and cultural happenings in the region.
