The information about the Summit was adopted at a Government session, stating that the new Growth Plan for the Western Balkans will strengthen economic cooperation in the region and provide tangible benefits for the countries of the region through access to the EU single market. It also emphasized that successful implementation of the plan requires joint efforts and synergy from all countries in the region.
