BTA's conference "Europe in the Balkans: A Common Future" was held in cross-border format for the second time on Monday. It opened in the Turkish city of Edirne, with participants from the southern Bulgarian town of Haskovo joining online from BTA's National Press Club. The participants in the event in Haskovo discussed cooperation between Bulgaria and Turkiye as a basis for implementing successful projects.

Angelina Yaneva, junior expert at the Haskovo Regional Administration, explained that the cohesion policy between the Haskovo Region and the Balkan countries is mainly implemented through development and implementation of projects under the cross-border cooperation programmes.

Nalyan Gudzen, expert at the Joint Secretariat of the INTERREG Bulgaria - Turkiye 2021-2027, said that more than 148 organizations have received support under the programme. She said the migration management project aims at a safer and more secure Europe.

The participants in the conference examined examples of partnerships and joint projects between municipalities in the region.

The project "Europe in the Balkans: A Common Future" is implemented by BTA with support from the European Commission. It builds on a past project, "Europe in Bulgaria: A Common Future", and aims to foster a better understanding of the role of the cohesion policy in the Balkans; to raise awareness of projects funded by the EU through the Cohesion Funds; promote dialogue on the results of the projects at local level and boost civic participation in issues related to cohesion policy.
