The Balkan & Black Sea Commission of the CPMR is organising its 2016 General Assembly on 30-31 May 2016, in Istanbul

The Balkan & Black Sea Commission (BBSC) of the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) has the honour to invite you to the 2016 BBSC General Assembly on 30-31 May 2016, in Istanbul, Turkey. The Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) brings together some 160 Regions from 24 States from the European Union and beyond. Representing about 200 million people, the CPMR campaigns in favour of a more balanced development of the European territory. It focuses mainly on social, economic and territorial cohesion, maritime policies and blue growth, and accessibility. European governance, energy and climate change, neighbourhood and development also represent important areas of activity for the association. The CPMR is represented in the wider Black Sea region through its Balkan & Black Sea Commission (BBSC).

The current period is very important, as several programmes and policies regarding the wider Black Sea Region are under way or being developed, including territorial Cooperation Programmes and Calls for maritime projects aiming to foster the development of the Blue Economy in the Black Sea.

The General Assembly will place special emphasis on these European programmes and policies. Through its meetings we aim to achieve a reinforced relationship between the CPMR/BBSC Members, Secretariat and other stakeholders, as well as a more active involvement of our Members in projects and policies that cope with regional and local needs in an innovative way.

This is a fundamental moment for BBSC Members and observer Regions alike, as meetings of the BBSC Working Groups on Tourism and Business Cooperation are scheduled within the framework of our BBSC General Assembly, offering an excellent opportunity to exchange best practices.

The Meeting will be kindly hosted by the Permanent International Secretariat of the Black Sea Economic Cooperation Organization at its prestigious headquarters in Emirgan, Istanbul.

Please note that the Draft Agenda (attached), as well as practical and logistical information, is now available on the CPMR website, along with online registration.

For any further logistical information, please contact Ms Lejla Becirovic (Lejla.Becirovic@crpm.org).

For programme updates, please contact Mr Stavros Kalognomos (Stavros.Kalognomos@crpm.org).

We look forward to welcoming you to Istanbul, and working together to reinforce regional activity in the wider Black Sea region.

Yours sincerely,
