14th of December 2018, Baku - The Republic of Moldova believes that, thanks to the financial and political assistance provided by the European Union in the wider Black Sea region, the format of interaction between the BSEC and the EU has a great potential for regional development. The statement was made by the Head of the Moldovan diplomacy, Tudor Ulianovschi, at the Meeting of the Council of Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the member states of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization (BSEC), organized under the auspices of the Chairmanship of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

Minister Tudor Ulianovschi stressed that only by working together and combining the joint efforts of the BSEC member states the main objectives, set in the Organization's agenda, can be achieved, including the deepening of the dialogue and the sectoral interaction between the BSEC and the European Union in the existing format. “In this context, I reiterate the strong commitment of the Republic of Moldova for the pro-active participation in the process of the development of economic cooperation in the Black Sea region”, stated the Head of Moldovan diplomacy.

Evaluating the Organization's activities in the area of trade, informational technologies, tourism and attraction of investments, Minister Tudor Ulianovschi appreciated the efforts of the Republic of Azerbaijan in implementing the Chairmanship program. “The ICT sector has a growing influence within the region and the Ministerial meeting on Informational Technologies, which was held on the 4th of December in Baku, has demonstrated the willingness of BSEC Member States for the development of a common roadmap for this important area of cooperation in the contemporary world. Key areas of agriculture and tourism represent special priorities for the Republic of Moldova and we will support initiatives, which will aim to develop a favourable investment climate in the Black Sea region”, said Tudor Ulianovschi.

It was also welcomed the incoming Chairmanship of Bulgaria, which aims to provide continuity in the realisation of the common priorities and exploring new opportunities for BSEC member states at the regional level.

During the event, the discussions were focused on economic and sectoral cooperation, as well as the progress made in the activities of the working groups. Also, several topics related to the organizational matters of the BSEC Organisation were addressed and the results of the activities of the Permanent International Secretariat during the current year were also examined.

Note: The Black Sea Economic Cooperation was established on June 25, 1992, in Istanbul, when the Summit Declaration was signed by the Heads of State and Government of eleven countries – Republic of Albania, Republic of Armenia, Republic of Azerbaijan, Republic of Bulgaria, Georgia, Hellenic Republic, Republic of Moldova, Romania, Russian Federation, Republic of Turkey and Ukraine – thus setting up a regional structure of multilateral cooperation in various fields of economic activity.
