PERFORM Supports Establishment of Balkan Association of Applied Economists

On 20-21 February 2016, PERFORM supported a group of economists from Albania and the region to meet in Tirana and discuss the establishment of the Balkan Association of Applied Economists

Seventeen participants from different sectors (universities, central banks, think tanks) and countries (UK, Serbia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Albania), assisted by two professors from the Staffordshire University, met to discuss intensively the purpose of the Association, its role and functioning, and initial elements of an association statute. 

The participants agreed on the activities to be undertaken during 2016, which concerned legal review to find out the most suitable form for a regional association, organisational issues to be sorted out, design of a website, and assigned two interim boards, management and editorial, to work on the association until registration.
