For the first time, representatives of the countries of South East Europe consider the possibility of establishing a regional international institute suitable to significantly affect the economic development of the countries of the Region, open up opportunities for new jobs, and in particular reduce the outflow of talents, which is one of the biggest problems in our Region.
