Regional meeting

From September 28 to October 1, 2022, the partners of the joint regional initiative "Advancing Gender Equality in the EU Accession Process" gathered in Budva, Montenegro, for a meeting. Working on this initiative amidst the Covid-19 pandemic has fostered our creativity and adaptability. Finally having the opportunity to meet in person, we engaged in fruitful discussions and enjoyed spending time together. During the meeting, we reaffirmed our determination to forge ahead, embracing new perspectives and facing challenges as a united front. We are equally prepared to successfully implement the activities outlined in our initiative.
