The meeting brought together officials from various governmental agencies of Turkey, including the Ministries of Customs and Trade, Foreign Affairs and Economy, representatives of international financial institutions such as BSTDB and EBRD, regional organisations such as BSEC, diplomatic corps and the local business community. Participants gave their unanimous support for the Model Highway Initiative and stressed the necessity to further promote its implementation in the BSEC region in the framework of effective public-private partnership.
