The Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the CEI Member States are gathering in Trieste on 11-12 June for their annual meeting. The event will be chaired by H.E. Enzo Moavero Milanesi, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy. Italy is holding the 2019 Presidency of the CEI, the largest forum for regional cooperation, celebrating, this year, its 30th Anniversary.
The gathering will take place under the title Central European Initiative at Thirty and towards the future: common vision, shared values, European standards, strong regional cooperation. Taking into account the CEI’s capacities and experience developed through political dialogue and tangible project oriented activities, the Ministers will focus on the special role the CEI could play in the process of the European integration of its non-EU Member States as well as in promoting the sustainable development of all its Member States. The Ministers are expected to adopt a final document, which will reconfirm the goals and objectives of the Organisation, and single out some specific areas for further cooperation.
