  2. Programming and Prioritisation SEE Ministerial Statement 2011 - Annex 3 bis - Action Plan for Implementation of a SEE 2020 Strategy Integrated growth underpinned by deeper trade and investment linkages should be pursued by: i. Removing trade distortive non-tariff barriers and facilitating cross-border movement of goods in a timely fashion; ii. Undertaking concerted efforts for the liberalisation of trade in services, under the auspices of CEFTA; iii. Creating a regional strategy for investment promotion that builds on the work that has already been conducted by the regional working groups under the auspices of the Investment Compact and the SEEIC; iv. Enforcing laws and regulations to protect intellectual property; v. Supporting the work of all CEFTA bodies and structures to fulfill their respective mandates; and vi. Developing a single regional capital market;

  3. Suggestions for regional initiatives

  4. Programming and Prioritisation: suggestions for regional initiatives Regional investment promotion strategy – a tailored regional strategy/approach targeting international investors in sectors or niches who could fit into Western Balkan value chains . Regional one stop shop for foreign investors – implementing a “single window” service for interested foreign investors prepared to invest in the Western Balkans. The OSS shop would have information on all 7 Western Balkan economies and would forward documents or requests to one of the seven IPAs A regional exhibition – a touring exhibition which would visit foreign markets and highlight a specific sector or niche area in each of the seven Western Balkan economies. Organisation of visits to Western Balkan – Western Balkan IPAs could organise joint visits of foreign investors to the region ,with a stop in each economy. This would save time and money for the foreign investor. Co-location in foreign markets – Western Balkan IPAs could identify cities where they could save money and build on information synergies (e.g., the Scandinavian Tourist Board in Asia-Pacific has joint offices in Tokyo and Beijing).
