The outlined Round Table is to be hosted by the Balkan Initiative, inviting the relevant key stakeholders from the Western Balkans to take active part in its work.
Alongside proven think-tanks, foundations, domestic and international research organizations and professional association dealing with the issues relevant to enforcement of contracts, operating in the Balkan region, the Round Table is predominantly interested to assist and enhance a dialogue between key contributors from various governmental departments or agencies, like justice departments, economy and finance departments, the judiciary, chambers of commerce, and so on.
