RCC Secretary General presents the organization’s new strategy at COWEB Capitals meeting
The RCC Secretary General Hido Biscevic presented today to the COWEB Capitals meeting in Brussels the organization’s Strategy and Work Programme 2011-13, adopted last month, and received support to the organization’s work by the participants.
Secretary General Biscevic highlighted that, in the implementation of the RCC mandate and the new three-year Strategy, it is necessary to take maximum advantage of recent positive trends in regional cooperation in South East Europe.
