Polish Presidency of the Berlin Process will host the first ministerial meeting on 11-12 April in Warsaw. Foreign ministers of the Berlin Process countries and officials from the European Commission, the European Foreign Action Service and the Regional Youth Cooperation Office will discuss bilateral issues in the Western Balkan region, the situation of young people, specifically their participation in the labour market. The Western Balkans Summit in Poznan is scheduled to take place on 4 and 5 July 2019.
The Polish Presidency has set four priorities for the Berlin Process:
1) the economy;
2) connectivity (mutual infrastructural links);
3) the civic dimension (the civil society, think tanks, youth and culture);
Poland plans to present its cross-sectional experiences in transformation, accession negotiations and absorption of EU funds. The Polish Presidency programme was developed on the basis of broad consultations with representatives of the governments and civil societies of the Western Balkans carried out by the Government’s Plenipotentiary for the Organization of the Summit, Deputy Foreign Minister Szymon Szynkowski vel Sęk.
