Salzburg Forum Ministerial Conference

From 16th to 17th November 2011, the Salzburg Forum ministerial conference was held in Pravets, Bulgaria, and hosted by the Bulgarian SF Presidency. Mr. Travner and Mr. Veniger of the PCC SEE Secretariat participated in the session where the SF countries and the SF Group of Friends were represented, focusing on the security in the Western Balkan region. High representatives of the European Commission and Europol were also invited to the session. One of the main conclusions was that the cooperation between the SF countries, the Western Balkan countries as well as other relevant actors (PCC SEE, SELEC, Europol) needs to be further strengthened, also via the Post-Visa Liberalisation Monitoring Mechanism, while also focusing on the organised crime threats coming from the region.

Chaired by Slovenia from 01 January to 30 June 2024 / Next Chairmanship (1 July - 31 December 2024) by Albania
