Balkans, Gentiloni in Dubrovnik



Balkans, Gentiloni in Dubrovnik

Paolo Gentiloni, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, was in Dubrovnik to attend the ministerial meeting on the Ionian and Adriatic Initiative (IAI) / EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR).

Minister Gentiloni’s diplomatic mission falls within the scope of Italy’s staunch and constant action to reaffirm its role as a key partner of the Balkan Countries, also in the prospect of the Italian Presidency of the Berlin Process (the summit will be held in Italy in 2017); an assertive role that Italy is playing by leveraging all the regional cooperation instruments (EUSAIR, IAI, Trilateral meetings with Serbia and Albania, Central European Initiative - CEI).

The EU Strategy for the Adriatic and Ionian Region (EUSAIR) – which was launched on 18 November 2014 under the Italian Presidency of the European Council and spurred by the political impulse of Italy – aims at rationalising resources and sectorial policies by focusing on 4 common “Pillars”:  

Ø fishing and blue economy;

Ø  interconnectivity of infrastructures and electricity;

Ø  the environment;

Ø  tourism and culture.

Partners in EUSAIR, in addition to the EU Commission, are 8 Countries: 4 EU member Countries (Italy, Slovenia, Greece and Croatia) and 4 non-EU Countries (Albania, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Montenegro).

The IAI/EUSAIR Ministerial Meeting held in Dubrovnik represents a strategic direction-setting opportunity for the EU Commission and the 8 partner Countries. The meeting was followed by the EUSAIR Forum, which will present the Strategy to the public and provide an opportunity to open a debate with the Region’s representatives of civil society and opinion makers.
