BSEC-EU Cooperation

The tradition initiated in 2007 of informal meetings in Brussels between the BSEC open Troika and the members of the Council’s Working Party on Eastern Europe and Central Asia continue taking place annually in late November or beginning of December. The last meeting was held in Brussels on 6 December 2019.


The participants reiterated the significance and usefulness this annual informal meeting has recently acquired, providing a valuable and convenient framework for a regular overview of what has been achieved and for a useful exchange of views and proposals on further promoting the BSEC-EU cooperation in a balanced, practical and mutually agreeable way.

All the participants concurred that the relationship between BSEC and the EU has attained a level which has to be preserved and further enhanced, as a concrete contribution to the promotion of peace, stability and prosperity in the Black Sea region.
