The 5th Stakeholder Group (SHG) meeting in the cross-border region of “Prokletije-Bjeshket e Namuna” has been held on 27th March, 2017 in Berane, Montenegro.
The Baseline Study and Strategic Planning document has been accepted by the SHG, along with the logo of the region “Prokletije-Bjeshket e Namuna”.
During the discussion, the SHG members concluded that Memorandum of Understanding expressing the good will for future cooperation should be signed by Mayors of participating municipalities, but also by civil sector, as well as business sector. Therefore, the Mayors of the participating municipalities should be informed in details about the process, as well as the identified priorities for economic development of the cross-border region. Ministry representatives from the SWG member institutions should facilitate this process, along with the SHG members.
During the meeting, the Stakeholder Group concluded that mutual interest of SHG members is to continue with the activities for enlargement, its consolidation and further establishment of its structures.
